Authorities don’t believe Darius Miles pulled the trigger in the murder of Jamea Jonae Harris.
Miles and Michael Davis have both been charged with capital murder for allegedly carrying out Harris’ murder in the early Sunday morning hours.
Harris died after bullets were fired into the vehicle she was in. Firing into a vehicle raises the crime to that of capital murder. Police also revealed an unnamed victim in the same vehicle as Harris returned fire and successfully hit one of the suspects.
Darius Miles allegedly supplied the weapon.
Court records indicate the police believe the triggerman was Davis, but the former Alabama basketball player is accused of providing the gun he allegedly used in the murder, according to AL.com.
Prior to the news about the weapon coming out, an attorney for Miles released a statement to Fox News that his client maintains his innocence.
“Darius Miles and his family are heartbroken tonight over the death of Jamea Jonae Harris. While Darius has been accused of being involved with this tragedy, he maintains his innocence and looks forward to his day in court. Our firm’s own investigation is ongoing, and no further statement will be made at this time,” Miles’ attorney William C. White II explained Fox News.
Following his arrest Sunday on a capital murder charge, Alabama head coach Nate Oats immediately removed Davis from the team.
Now, he’s in police custody as the authorities continue to dig into why Davis and Miles allegedly murdered a young mother.
Early reports have indicated police believe the deadly situation started as a minor argument.
