LOUISVILLE, Ga. — Two more suspects in a Jefferson County slaying surrendered to police Monday.

Octavius Desmond “Tay Tay” Hickson and Dalonte Jerrod “Big J” Tarver, came in to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office about 4 p.m., accompanied by a lawyer, Jefferson County District Attorney Hayward Altman said.

The men are each facing a murder charge in the shooting death of Kenneth Quarterman Jr., 23, of Augusta. Quarterman was shot June 16 in what authorities have labeled a gang-related drive-by shooting in Louisville. Quarterman was taken to Georgia Regents University in Augusta, where he died.

A second victim, Charles Lewis Brown III, 25, of Wrens, was shot in the head and hand. He was taken to Jefferson Hospital, where he was treated and released.

A total of 12 suspects have been named by authorities in connection with the shootings. Only one suspect remained at large Monday. Authorities were still searching for Darryus Sergio Jackson, 22, of Wadley.

The district attorney has said the investigation is ongoing and other charges are pending.

They have named everybody but Howdy Doody as a suspect. Unless someone squeals, nobody will be convicted in this. How would you know who really did it?
