Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson announced Friday afternoon that a felony criminal warrant has been issued for the arrest of Marcus Eugene Sutton, charging him with murder.
 
Sutton is accused of the late Wednesday night shooting death of 23-year-old Anderson “Andy” Watts at 22 Fisher Road, Rossville.
 
Sutton is described as a black male, 5’6”, 160 pounds, black hair, brown eyes and 20 years of age.
 

Sheriff Wilson described Sutton as armed and extremely dangerous.

Sheriff Wilson said Sutton was at the apartment of the victim at or around the time of the shooting. He is facing charges of  aggravated assault, reckless conduct, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and violation of probation. Those four charges stem from an incident two weeks earlier.

Officers responded to a shots fire called shortly after 11:30 p.m. Police found the victim with multiple gunshot wounds.

Sheriff Wilson said the victim had been staying with a resident at the apartment complex for the past several days.

The tenant was out of the apartment walking a dog when the shooting happened. The resident said he did hear the gunshots. He said he had only been gone for about 15 minutes. 

Anyone who knows Sutton’s whereabouts is asked to call Walker County dispatch at 706-375-7810.
