HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — According to the Huntsville Police Department, an arrest has been made in connection with a death investigation.

Authorities said 27-year-old Sateaus Dejuan Wilson turned himself in Friday in connection to the murder of Dimitrick Mims Jr.

Emergency crews were called to Tucker Drive around 2:00 a.m. Wednesday for a call about a shooting. When they arrived, authorities said they found Mims and confirmed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound.

During the investigation, Wilson became a possible suspect. HPD investigators and US Marshalls didn’t release his name because they learned Wilson posed a flight risk early in the investigation.

A warrant was obtained for Wilson’s arrest on Thursday. Investigators reached out to Wilson’s family and were able to get him to turn himself in peacefully without incident.
