U.S. Marshals in Collin County took Janaal Dunn, 19, of Lufkin, into custody Monday afternoon on a murder warrant in connection with the shooting death of a Lufkin man in March.
Marzell Frost, 32, of Lufkin, died of a gunshot wound to the chest at Green Meadows Apartments on March 28. The shooting occurred when Dunn attempted to rob Frost's apartment, according to a press release from Jessica Pebsworth, city of Lufkin communications director.
"We want to thank the U.S. Marshals Service for their assistance in Dunn’s apprehension as well as local authorities in Collin County," Pebsworth said. "While we know that nothing will truly bring Mr. Frost’s family comfort, we hope they find some closure in knowing Dunn is in custody."
The arrest comes after a days-long manhunt conducted by Lufkin police as the investigation into Frost's death continued.
The call about a shooting came in to 911 around 2:30 a.m. on March 28. Officers arrived at the complex to find Frost dead following a disturbance inside Apartment 13A, according to Pebsworth.
Officers began looking for a suspect described as a Black male wearing a gray hoodie. Later, the department asked for the public's help in finding Dunn.
Dunn will be brought back to Angelina County in the coming days, the release states.
