Brookhaven murder suspect surrenders to police

A man charged with murder in a shooting last week turned himself in to Brookhaven police this morning.

Justin Anderson was wanted in connection with the shooting death of Billy Ray Thomas early Friday morning at the Oasis Club in Brookhaven.

“He surrendered himself with his lawyer and his mother was present,” Police Chief Kenneth Collins said.

Collins thanked U.S. marshals, sheriff’s deputies in Adams and Lincoln counties and other law enforcement agencies who helped in the search for Anderson.

Collins said Anderson surrendered to police shortly after 9 a.m.

He also faces eight charges of aggravated assault.
