Arrest made in Texas in 2011 Lithonia slaying of tattoo artist

A man suspected of killing a 27-year-old Lithonia tattoo artist almost 2 1/2 years ago was in a jail in Texas, Saturday, awaiting his return to Georgia to face murder charges.

The U.S. Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force along with the Bell County, Texas, Organized Crime Unit and Killeen and Harker Heights police departments had tracked Terrance Lamont Davis to a house in Killeen, Texas, and they arrested him moments after he drove away from it Thursday evening.

Andrew Wayne Fortune, 27, was killed during an August 2011 robbery at his townhome where he also ran a tattoo business, Black Heart Inc.

At the time, police said at least two men came into Fortune’s home, demanding money. Fortune was shot during a struggle.

Davis’ arrest is the only one that has been announced.
