FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Members of the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force Wednesday afternoon apprehended accused Nashville murderer Wesley Croichy Jr., 22, at an apartment complex on Rio Vista Drive in Madison.

When law enforcement approached Croichy in the parking lot, he fled into an apartment and then jumped through a window in an attempt to get away. He was quickly apprehended. During the arrest, Croichy head-butted a member of the Task Force, leading to an additional charge of assault against an officer.

Croichy is under indictment on charges of first-degree murder and especially aggravated robbery for the July 26 shooting death of Treshaun David, 20, in the 2300 block of 25th Avenue North. Croichy and co-defendant Devonte Sherley, 23, were subsequently identified as the two men responsible for shooting David while robbing him. Sherley was arrested for murder and robbery on July 27. Both Croichy and Sherley remain in the Metro Jail.
