DETROIT (WWJ) — Police have arrested one of the women suspected in the fatal shooting of a Detroit O’Reilly Auto Parts manager.
Reports indicate that the Detroit Police SWAT and tactical units have arrested 23-year-old Shawnta Anderson on Monday night for her role in the murder of James Haller. She was found in the area of 6000 block of Colfax Avenue, and taken into custody around 9 p.m.
Police had believed the shooter Anderson, along with her accomplice 28-year-old Eboni Monae Mcewen-Ross, had been on the run from the cops and heading to Ohio. The two are suspects in the murder of Haller — which occurred on the city’s west side last Wednesday. The two demanded money from a female clerk and shot Haller once he came over to see what was going on.
At this time police say its too soon to tell what Anderson will be charged with or when she will be charged.
A $10,000 reward from the O’Reilly Auto Parts family is being offered for the tip that leads to an arrest in the case, in addition to a $2,500 reward being offered by Crime Stoppers, for a total of $12,500. Police say tips came in from some citizens information and the hard work of the detectives led to the arrest of Anderson.
Police are still looking for Mcewen-Ross at this time.
