Suspects Arrested, Charged in Fatal Shooting at 525 Crosstimbers

Charges have been filed against two suspects arrested in the fatal shooting of a man at 525 Crosstimbers about 1 p.m. on December 17, 2017.

One suspect, Kaila Alexine Nelson (b/f, 23), is charged with capital murder and the other suspect, Dinesha Renee Jackson (b/f, 23), is charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.  The charges are filed in the 208th State District Court. 

A current booking photo of Jackson and a 2017 photo of Nelson (courtesy of Cobb County Sheriff's Office, Georgia) are attached to this news release.

The suspects are accused in the killing of Dequan Donte Anderson, 20, who was pronounced dead at Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeants M. Brady and M. Casso reported:

Mr. Anderson got into his car at his place of employment at the above address and was taking a money bag from the store to the bank when he was approached by an unknown suspect.  The suspect opened Anderson’s car door and tried to grab the money bag.  The suspect then pulled out a pistol and fired multiple rounds into the vehicle, striking Anderson multiple times.  Anderson attempted to drive away and crashed his car into a nearby median.  He was transported to LBJ Hospital where he later died from his wounds.
Multiple witnesses stated the suspect ran north on Oxford and got into a dark blue Dodge Avenger, which then fled the scene.
Further investigation led to the identities of Nelson and Jackson as suspects in this case.  Nelson was identified as the shooter and was arrested in Marietta, Georgia, on February 7.  She confessed to her role in the incident.  

On February 14, investigators arrested Jackson in Houston.  Jackson confessed to her role in the robbery/shooting.
