Duckett is accused of shooting and killing 25-year-old Anthony Tennon on October 15, in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 2100 block of Hendricks Drive. At the time, Arlington police had asked the public for help identifying a suspect, because they did not believe the shooting was random.
Officials say Duckett was armed with a rifle and other firearms when agents found him, and at first refused to surrender. The statement says Duckett was taken into custody after investigators gave orders to him over a loud speaker.READ MORE: COVID-19 Booster Shot Not Yet FDA-Authorized, But Some Not Waiting
