Gaylon Dorsey, 35, was arrested late Tuesday night. Police say he is a suspect in the killing of Quincy Brown in the 200 block of South Jackson Street around 1:45 p.m. He was charged on Friday with kidnapping and two counts of first-degree robbery.

Investigators found Brown laying on the kitchen floor with a gunshot wound to the chest. According to court records, a witness told police the two were getting ready to leave when Dorsey knocked on the door and said he was their neighbor. When the witness opened the door, Dorsey kicked it in and shot Brown. The witness said Dorsey then robbed them and forced her to drive Brown’s car to an old cotton compress.

Dorsey was found less than a half a mile from the burned vehicle near Cordell. The clothing he was wearing was consistent with the victim’s description of the suspect.

The Medical Examiner’s Office has been able to determine the manner of death as homicide by a gunshot wound to the chest.
