2nd of 2 Springfield Murder Suspects Now In Custody
SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Maleque Hudson, a suspect wanted for the murder of a teenager in Springfield last week is now in custody.
18-year-old Hudson appeared in the Robertson County Detention Facility in Springfield on Monday. The circumstances of Hudson’s apprehension are unknown, however, we have one report that he turned himself in. We are still waiting for a release from Springfield Police.
According to the jail facility, Hudson has been charged with First Degree Murder. No bond amount has been listed, and, according to jail records, Hudson is still behind bars.
The other suspect, 20-year-old Klyjuan Smith, also charged with First Degree Murder, remains behind bars with no bond listed.
Springfield Police announced Smith and Hudson were suspects in a violent shooting that occurred last Wednesday night in Springfield.
Around 10 pm 911 received a call reporting around ten gunshots and a fleeing vehicle on Page St. If Police evidence markers on Page St are indicators of shell casings, there would have been at least ten shots fired, closer to twenty.
Officials tell Smokey Barn News that after being shot, the teen crashed his vehicle into a home on E. 16th Ave and Shelton St. (see video below) He was transported to NorthCrest Medical Center in Springfield in “extremely critical condition” and later died, officials said.
Two other teens (identified only as males) were also injured, apparently, in the crash, officials said preliminarily. The second of the three teens was listed “in serious condition” and transported to Vanderbilt’s Children’s Hospital in Nashville. The third teen was transported to NorthCrest Medical with minor injuries. According to officials, all three teens are minors.
The Springfield Police Department is leading the investigation.
The Springfield Police Department does not believe this incident to be a random act of violence as it appears that the individuals involved knew each other.
