KHON2’s camera was the only one there as the suspect 19-year-old Brandon Horton was brought into HPD’s main cellblock.
He’s wanted for murder in Nashville, Tennessee.
When the US Marshals service got word Horton was hiding here in Hawaii, they and ICE task force officers tracked him down to the Aliamanu Military Reservation, and arrested him just after 6 p.m. Thursday.
Metro Nashville police department confirmed on their official Twitter page that Horton was arrested in Honolulu for the murder of 19-year-old Craig Lambert back in March.
Our sister station in Nashville WKRN reported that Lambert’s shooting death was initially being investigated as an accident, but just last week police re-classified it as a homicide.
Horton is expected to be extradited back to Nashville to face a murder charge.
