Terrell PD: Man Wanted in Two Murders Remains at Large

Officers responded to a call involving the shootings around 6 p.m. Saturday

Authorities in Terrell are searching for a man accused in the shooting deaths of two men Saturday evening. The victims were found in separate homes, less than a mile apart.

Officers responded to the incidents around 6 p.m. Saturday, according to the Terrell Police Department.

Police said one of the gunshot victims was killed in a home in the 300 block of Cottage Street. Another man was shot to death in the 500 block of Frazier Street.

On Sunday, police identified the suspect as Jermichael D. Maxie, 29, of Terrell. Police said the shooter is "known to authorities" and "remains at large."

The victims have been identified as 25-year-old Markiest Lucky, and 37-year-old Kenneth Wayne White Jr.

White's sister, Kawana White, said he was a father of four who was born and raised in Terrell. 

"My main concern is my mom and I just want the truth," White said. "I didn't get any sleep last night, my mom didn't get any sleep because we're not at ease."

Police did not publicly identify a possible motive or confirm any relationship between the victims and Maxie.

Anyone with information on Maxie's whereabouts is asked to contact Terrell police.
