Deputies with the Butts County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call just after 6 p.m. about a man who was found shot and not breathing in the Ingles grocery store parking lot in Jackson, Georgia, the GBI said. 

A preliminary investigation determined that Crawford died at the scene of apparent gunshot wounds. 

Investigators quickly identified Davenport as a person of interest in the murder investigation and requested the GBI for assistance.

After a six-hour manhunt, Davenport was located just before midnight and taken into custody without incident, the Butts County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook.
