Detectives with the Chattanooga Police Department’s Homicide Unit have arrested Devante Lavon Raglan, 19, in connection with the murder of 37-year-old Timothy Bumpass.
He will killed at 4800 Swan Road on Jan. 12.
Ragland has been charged with felony murder, especially aggravated robbery, and criminal conspiracy.
At 10:04 p.m. on a Saturday, Chattanooga Police responded to 4832 Swan Road. When they arrived they found a black male in his 30s who had been shot and was pronounced dead on the scene.
Police said at the time it was "believed that the victim was targeted by the suspect(s) and that it was not a random shooting."
Kristopher Bell and Christopher Jennings were arrested earlier in the case.
At the time police said they were looking for a third suspect, "Scooby." They said Raglan had the nickname "Scooby."
In the incident at the Lakeside Youth Sports Park, a witness said at 10 p.m. he saw two men wearing black clothing dragging a lifeless body away from a Cadillac that was in the parking lot. Officers found the unoccupied Cadillac with the driver-side front window shattered and blood on the driver's seat and door.
Officers found the victim at the edge of some woods, just north of the Cadillac. He had been shot multiple times and was dead.
Several personal items belonging to the victim were missing. No shell casing were found on the scene indicating he may have been shot with a revolver.
A witness said the victim had received a phone call from Kris, who was an associate of the victim and often bought marijuana from him. The witness said Kris stated he had just robbed someone for $14,000 and wanted to buy $1,300 worth of marijuana.
Police said the suspects apparently fled on foot toward a trail that leads to the British Woods Apartments, where Kristopher Bell lives.
Witnesses said Bell left the apartment with Jennings and "Scooby" at 9:30 p.m. and all three were wearing black clothing. A short time later Bell called a witness from Jennings' phone asking for the phone number of Bumpass.
Witnesses said the parties returned to the apartment 30-45 minutes later and Bell and Jennings were panting and sweating. All three changed clothing and Jennings and "Scooby" left the apartment.
A witness said "Scooby" was seen with a black revolver.
Police said Bell has given inconsistent statements about his location at the time of the murder. Jennings has refused to give a statement.
