Murder arrest made in fatal Denison shooting

DENISON, Tex. (KXII) - One person was killed and another was arrested for murder in a shooting Thursday night in Denison.

Denison police work the scene of a murder at the Circle Apartments at 527 S. Austin Ave. Feb. 13, 2020 (KXII).

Denison Police Lt. Mike Eppler said officers responded to a shots fired call at the Circle Apartments at 1527 S. Austin Ave. around 10:30 p.m.

"I never would have thought there was a murder here in my new front yard," said Allen Kramer, who just moved in.

Kramer moved into the complex a day after Denison police confirm a murder happened right outside his new place.

"It's kind of crazy. It's my first day moving here. It's wild," Kramer said.

When police got to the Circle Apartments, they found a person with a gunshot wound.

EMS took them to the hospital, where they were later pronounced dead.

"During the investigation, the suspect was identified and arrested and charged with murder," said Denison Police Lt. Mike Eppler.

Jail records show Denison police arrested Jerkeylon Norvell, 23, for murder between Thursday and Friday.

Eppler said he can't confirm if he's the suspect in this shooting.

He said they believe it started as a domestic incident.

"I didn't even know these people. It's sad," Kramer said.

Garrick Hubbard lives in the complex and was asleep. He saw the scene on his way to work around 4 a.m. Friday.

"When I turned the corner down there, I seen quite a bit of the Denison police so I knew something was out of the ordinary, but not out of the ordinary," Hubbard said.

That's because this isn't the first shooting at this complex.

In September, a man went to the hospital after getting shot in the head right outside a breezeway.

Hubbard was standing outside when he heard a gunshot and screams, and went back inside.

"It doesn't matter where you are, doesn't matter what city, doesn't matter if it's an apartment, home, doesn't matter where you are. It's just the world that we live in now," Hubbard said.

"Just trying to stay safe, you know, it's Denison, Texas," Kramer said.

Norvell is the Grayson County Jail on a $500,000 bond.

Police have not yet identified the victim or the suspect in the case.
