A 22 year old Arlington man wanted on an Arlington murder warrant turned himself in at Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office on Monday.
An arrest warrant was issued in Arlington for 22-year-old Keshawn Sims on one count of Murder, in connection to the death of 17-year-old Knoah Harlan.
Harlan was in a car with four other people who police said met near Bowie High School, along the 2100 block of Highbank Drive, for a fight just before 3 p.m. July 27, according to NBC DFW.
“When a second vehicle arrived at the location, witnesses said the driver began to drive recklessly in front of the school. When the driver began accelerating toward the parked car, investigators said all five people got out ‘believing the car they were seated in might be struck.'”, reported NBC DFW.
That’s when, according to witnesses, the driver of the car swerved and struck Harlan. The teen was transported to a nearby hospital where he later died.
Sims left the scene following the collision, according to police.
Sims is charged with Murder and Aggravated Assault. He is currently held at Hopkins County Jail on bonds totaling one million dollars.
