KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Police say they've found one of men behind a deadly shooting in Fort Sanders last Thursday.

Tuesday morning Knox County Sheriff's deputies arrested Devin Jamison at a house on Parkview Avenue.

Jamison was interviewed by investigators before he was taken to the Knox County Detention Facility.

Authorities believe Jamison killed 19-year-old Sawyer Webb during a robbery attempt at a Grand Forest apartment and shot Crestus Roser in the leg.

He faces six charges, including Felony Murder, Attempted First Degree Murder, Aggravated Robbery, Especially Aggravated Kidnapping, and two counts of Attempted Aggravated Robbery.

He was also charged with an additional count of robbery from a separate incident on Hembree Steet on the same day.

Jamison's bond is set at $1.67 million.

Another suspect was also named, 18-year-old Jaron Harris.

Harris is wanted on charges of Felony Murder, Attempted First Degree Murder, Aggravated Robbery, Especially Aggravated Kidnapping, and two counts of Attempted Aggravated Robbery.

He is described as a black man, 5'11" tall, around 160 lbs., with brown eyes and black hair. His last known address was 2046 E. Fifth Avenue.

A picture of Harris is currently not available.

Police say Jamison and another unidentified suspect offered a ride to a 75 year-old victim as he was walking on Hembree Street near Wilson Avenue.

The report shows Jamison attacked the man and stole his wallet before throwing him from the vehicle. The victim suffered leg injuries.
