The suspect in the killing of a Baton Rouge man on Evangeline Street last week surrendered to police Wednesday afternoon.
Baton Rouge police identified 32-year-old Michael Demond Davis, address unknown, on Tuesday as the suspect in the fatal shooting of 34-year-old Tyrone Dyer, of 3814 Evangeline St., Sgt. Don Coppola, a Baton Rouge Police spokesman, said Tuesday.
Dyer was shot to death outside his home around 11 p.m. on March 16.
Davis will be booked into Parish Prison on first-degree murder.
Dyer’s sister, Tanya Dyer Gibson, told The Advocate that Dyer’s wife told her two masked men wielding guns approached the couple and Dyer’s two children outside their home and demanded money.
While being held at gunpoint, Dyer told his wife to hand over about $11,000 hidden in the house, Gibson said, which she handed over to the robbers before they shot Dyer twice in the head in front of his wife and children.
