Brother of man killed by police Oct. 19 charged in Saturday homicide at gas station
Police say Tashawn L. Walker, older brother of Taemarr Walker, came to Warren last week to attend his brother’s funeral but shot to death a 24-year-old Niles man at a Warren gas station, then went back to Texas before the funeral.
Monday afternoon, the U.S. Marshal’s Gulf Coast Violent Offenders and Fugitive Task Force in Houston arrested Tashawn “Boo” Walker, 26, at a residence in Baytown, Texas, without incident.
Walker will be brought back to Warren to face a murder charge in the death of Richard Rollison IV, 24, of Royal Mall in Niles.
Warren police said Monday Rollison was shot six times in the parking lot of the Sunoco gas station, 805 W. Market St., at 12:54 a.m. Rollison died at 4:58 a.m., his father, Richard Rollison III, said Sunday.
Police issued an arrest warrant for Tashawn Walker later Saturday charging him with murder.
Rollison was still conscious and talking at the gas station and told police and his father who shot him, according to Richard Rollison III and dash-cam video from one of the Warren police officers’ cars.
The dash video indicated that the blue Tahoe Rollison was driving was missing after the shooting, and a gun and spent shell casings were found near the shooting scene.
