Co-defendant Arrested in Murder Case

2nd Suspect Facing Murder Charge

San Antonio, TX - Jennifer Nicole Johnson, 26, was arrested this evening by members of the United States Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF), in San Antonio, TX. An arrest warrant was issued pursuant to an investigation by the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD), where it is alleged that Johnson committed murder.

This evening, LSFTF officers initiated an investigation in locating and apprehending Johnson. Through investigative efforts, task force officers determined that Johnson could be found on the northeast side of San Antonio. Task force officers made contact with Johnson, identified themselves, explained that there was a warrant for her arrest, and took her into custody without incident.

On April 30, 2015, the deceased body of a young woman was discovered by a passerby near the 8700 block of East Evans Road, on the northeast side of San Antonio. Reports stated that the woman suffered from one gunshot wound to the head. After a thorough investigation by SAPD Homicide detectives, an arrest warrant was issued today for Johnson in connection with the murder. On June 5, 2015, Zachary Duncan, 29, was also arrested by task force officers for his alleged involvement in the murder.

Johnson is currently being held in custody at the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, states, “This case demanded our immediate attention and our task force officers affected the arrest without delay. Once the arrest warrant was issued, Johnson’s apprehension was not too far behind.”
