Jonterio Walker, of Gadsden, was arrested early Sunday morning on murder and attempted murder warrants for the shooting death of Corion Jackson and attempted murder of his brother Jeffery Montez Jackson in the Gateway Village community.

The Gulf Coast US Marshall's Taskforce contacted Gadsden Police Department after receiving a tip about where Walker was hiding.  Gadsden officers surrounded a Newton Street apartment early Monday morning.  After setting up a perimeter, officers knocked on the door.  Moments later, the Walker was seen trying to escape through a back window, but when he saw he was surrounded, he gave up without further incident. 

Walker is being held on two $100,000 cash bonds at the Etowah County Jail.

A female was also taken into custody and is being held in the Etowah County Jail
