(WDEF) A first degree murder suspect was arrested in Memphis Monday by the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force.
Rodney “Big Head” Jennings was wanted out of Chattanooga on a First Degree Murder Warrant. On January 28 Jennings allegedly shot a Rapheal White to death in Chattanooga. Jennings was added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) Ten Most Wanted list.
The Chattanooga Police, TBI, the U.S. Marshals Smokey Mountain Fugitive Task Force, and the U.S. Marshal’s office in Abingdon, Virginia, worked in conjunction for weeks to try to locate the fugitive. Information was developed that the fugitive was in the Memphis area. At this point the Gulf Coast Regional Task Force was brought in to assist.
The fugitive was tracked to the Oak Court apartments in south Memphis. Once agents had surrounded the apartment he was hiding in he surrendered without incident. An Uzi style gun was seized at the apartment as well. At this time it is not known if it is involved in any crimes.
At the time of this report Jennings is in the Shelby County Jail awaiting extradition.
