West Columbia murder suspect in custody in Arizona

September 20, 2018

Arizona - The man investigators said is responsible for a West Columbia homicide has been arrested in Arizona by a U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.


Jamal Devontae Coburn, 26, was taken into custody Wednesday on a murder charge stemming from the Aug. 24 fatal shooting of Corey Jamison, according to investigators.


“Our fugitive task force worked around the clock for two weeks to track Coburn to the Glendale, Arizona area,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “We alerted U.S. Marshals to his whereabouts, and they were able to arrest him at an apartment without incident.”


Koon said the joint effort helped take a dangerous man off the streets after nearly a month on the run.

Coburn is currently being held in the Maricopa County Detention Center.
