A Linden man wanted in connection to the deadly June 12th shooting on Willow Lane in Tuscaloosa has been arrested and charged with capital murder, the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit confirmed early Friday morning.

21-year-old Quartavius Hudson, a Linden, Alabama man,  was located late Thursday night by the US Marshalls Task Force. The Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit had recently obtained warrants on Hudson for Capital Murder.

The Linden Police Department and the Marengo County Sheriff's Office both assisted the Tuscaloosa VCU throughout this investigation.

Hudson is the third suspect charged in the murder of 19-year-old Versaun Leonard, alongside Brenygha Edwards, 22, and Justin Demond Jenkins, 21.

Court documents indicate the killing took place during a robbery-turned-deadly, which led to the capital murder charges for Jenkins and Hudson. Both will be held in the Tuscaloosa County Jail with no bond.

A mugshot for Hudson was not available on the jail's website at the time of publication.

Edwards was originally charged with capital murder also, but that charge was downgraded to felony murder earlier this month. She remains in the jail on an $80,000 bond.

Jack Kennedy, Captain of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, said the investigation is still active, and more charges could be forthcoming for any others involved in the shooting.
