CANTON, Ohio (WJW) — Video released from Canton police show the moments a 22-year-old murder suspect jumped from a second-story window and ran from police to avoid arrest.
The Canton S.W.A.T. team and detectives were executing a search warrant for Jamarri Harper in connection with a fatal shooting that happened Monday morning at 5 a.m. in the 900 block of Dueber Ave. S.W., according to a release from Canton police.
The victim, 52-year-old Gary Marx from Alliance, was found laying near the entrance to the home. Officers say he was unresponsive and suffered an apparent gunshot wound to the neck. Marx was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
After reviewing evidence from the Canton Police Real Time Crime Center, authorities were able to identify Harper as a suspect and execute the warrant.
