AUBURN, Ala. (WTVM) - Two suspects have been arrested in a fatal shooting Thursday evening that took place on S. College Street in Auburn.

On Aug. 12, Auburn Police responded to a report of shooting at an apartment complex in the 1200 block of South College Street that resulted in the death of Ca’Darius Deshun Whatley.

An investigation into the incident resulted in Jakavian Keon Brooks, who was known to the victim, being developed as a suspect. Police determined that an interaction ensued at the residence, resulting in Whatley being fatally shot.

On August 13, detectives charged him with murder. Brooks was also arrested for an unrelated warrant for possession of a controlled substance. Brooks was later transported to the Lee County Detention Facility where he is being held on a $151,500 bond.

According to officials, 22-year-old Khalif Da’Quan Kellum, from Opelika, surrendered to Auburn Police at 7:15 p.m. Friday, August 13. Warrants for Kellum’s arrest are for hindering prosecution and tampering with physical evidence.
