Almost six years to the day after Jerome Johnson was arrested for allegedly brandishing a sawed off rifle in front of an elementary school, he has been brought back to justice by U.S. Marshals Task Forces working together.

Jerome Johnson, also known as Jerome Kennedy Jr., was arrested on May 22, 2008, for carrying a sawed off rifle in front of Gordon Elementary School, located at 780 Decatur. He was released on bond but failed to appear in court on the charges of possession of a prohibited weapon and carrying a weapon with intent on school property. A failure to appear warrant was issued on these charges.

This case has been under investigation by the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force since August 2010. After intensive investigation it was determined that the fugitive was in the Fort Worth, Texas, area.

Agents with the U.S. Marshals North Texas Fugitive Task Force were contacted. Further investigation determined the fugitive was working at a fast food restaurant. The fugitive was taken into custody at that restaurant on the afternoon of May 20, 2014, without incident.

Johnson was transported to the Tarrant County Jail where at the time of this report he awaits extradition by the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.
