Brother of man killed by police Oct. 19 charged in Saturday homicide at gas station

WARREN

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.

Really? Tashawn “Boo” Walker comes into Warren to attend his thug brothers funeral, MURDERS someone over a car, and runs like a sissy back to Texas. And the blacks wonder why sometimes their profiled. Sad part is this happens everyday. When will these young thugs learn that violence and KILLING someone does not accomplish ONE thing. They won't learn till their six feet under and then have there candle light memorials, protests, benefits, etc. People need to quit praising and sticking up for these thugs that rather choose violence over being a productive member of society. Praise the ones that become productive members of society instead of useless DNA's.

Thank goodness these thugs are stupid and therefor make these shootings easy for law enforcement to investigate. This last idiot may just as well called the cops after the shooting, announced he did it, and told them where he'd be when they wanted to question him.
