NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A teen murder suspect who was wanted in the April murder of Charlie Easley is now in custody.

The Juvenile Crime Task Force tracked 18-year-old Devion Jordan to an apartment on Porter Road in East Nashville, Metro police said.

The task force officers learned Jordan was likely at the Porter Road apartment with 20-year-old Marvin Summers. Summers was free on bond and wearing an ankle monitor after a pending first degree murder charge.

As officers were about to knock on the apartment door, Summers walked out. When he saw the police, he quickly went back inside and closed the door.

When the officers told him to come back outside, Summers did. He confirmed to police that Jordan was there.

Officers called for Jordan to come out multiple times. When Jordan finally did, he was apprehended.

During their search of the apartment, officers found two loaded semi-automatic pistols. One was concealed in a cereal box in the kitchen, while the other was stashed in the closet of a child's bedroom.

Jordan is charged with criminal homicide and especially aggravated robbery in the murder of Easley, which occurred on April 8 at Point Breeze Apartments on Lemont Drive of this year. Jordan will face those charges in juvenile court, because at the time of the homicide, he was 17 years old.

Summers is also facing charges for harboring Jordan and unlawful gun possession.

Jordan is the second of two teens who were wanted for the homicide of Easley.
