Marshals arrest man wanted for robbery involving Brandon Webber

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - U.S. marshals have captured the suspect wanted for a Mississippi robbery involving Brandon Webber, a man who was later shot and killed by a marshals task force in Memphis.

The same task force -- U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force -- found Andre Morris Friday at a home near Mt. Moriah and Hickory Hill.

Morris was wanted on a warrant for armed robbery out of DeSoto County. After Webber’s death, prosecutors in DeSoto County said he and another man -- now identified by the U.S. Marshal Service as Morris -- were suspected of meeting a man in Hernando to buy a car, shooting him five times and taking off with the car.
