Mass Shooting – Killed – Male Teen – Steven Presley (Crab Orchard, TN)

Steven Presley (COURTESY)

The four young victims who were found shot to death in a car in Cumberland County on Thursday have been identified, and authorities now have a person of interest in custody on an unrelated charge.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says 22-year-old Danielle Jacobson was the driver of the car, and her passengers were 17-year-old Steven Presley, 17-year-old Dominic Davis and 16-year-old John Lajeunesse.

Their bodies were taken to the medical examiner’s office for autopsies.

The TBI says Jacob Bennett, 26, of Crab Orchard, was found in Rhea County overnight and was taken into custody on an unrelated parole violation charge.

“I think the citizens of Cumberland County and Crossville can rest assured that we believe that we have this person that committed these crimes in custody, that this community is safe through the hard work of all these agencies,” said TBI Director Mark Gwyn.

Authorities believe the four people found shot to death were deliberately targeted and not the victims of random violence, but a motive in the shooting has not been released.

Their bodies were discovered by a resident of the Renegade Mountain resort community, about 50 miles west of Knoxville, who saw the parked car on his way to work at about 7 a.m. Thursday.

CROSSVILLE — Prosecutors will seek the death penalty for the man accused of killing four people in an alleged robbery during a botched pot sale on Renegade Mountain in Cumberland County.

Jacob Allen Bennett, 26, of Crab Orchard, Tenn., appeared briefly Thursday morning before Criminal Court Judge David Patterson. His attorney, Robert Marlow, entered a not guilty plea on his behalf to four counts of premeditated murder, four counts of felony murder and two counts of attempted aggravated robbery.

Bennett and his girlfriend, Brittany Lina Yvonn Moser, were indicted last month in the killings.The victims were found Sept. 12 in a car on Renegade Mountain.

Moser, 25, of Dayton, Tenn., faces four counts of felony murder and two counts of attempted aggravated robbery. Authorities allege that she was with Bennett at the time of the killings.

Officials think a pot buy was previously arranged and Bennett — accompanied by Moser — drove his 2002 Ford Explorer to rendezvous with Jacobsen and the teens.

Bennett had on occasion stayed with his grandparents Gary and Jeanne Haiser at their residence atop Renegade Mountain, which rises 1,000 feet off the Cumberland Plateau and has seen decades of failed efforts to develop it into a resort community.

Something went wrong during the attempted drug buy on the unnamed road leading into a 100-acre undeveloped area called Eagles Nest, less than one-third of the way up Renegade Mountain Parkway, officials said.

Investigators believe the shootings occurred either late Sept. 11 or early Sept. 12. The bodies were found at 7 a.m. Sept. 12.

Dante Quinones Wright

Dante Quinones Wright was hanging out with friends on Dartmouth Street in Hempstead when he was shot three times around 10 p.m. Wednesday. The teen was rushed to Winthrop Hospital where he died.

A North Valley Stream man has been charged in the killing of a Hempstead teen that occurred two weeks ago. During the suspect’s arraignment last Friday, a scuffle broke out at First District Court, resulting in six additional arrests.

Nassau County police arrested 20-year-old Pedro Merchant at his home on Ascan Street without incident at 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 19. Merchant is accused of shooting 17-year-old Dante Quinones-Wright multiple times in front of a home on Dartmouth Street in Hempstead on Sept. 11.

On the night of the shooting, police said, officers found Quinones-Wright lying in the street shortly before 10 p.m., having sustained three gunshot wounds in the chest, stomach and groin. He was taken to Winthrop Hospital, where doctors operated on him for about a half-hour. He was pronounced dead at 11 p.m.

male

An 18-year-old Bridgeport man was arrested in connection with a shooting that left one man dead and four others injured earlier this month.

Five men, who are between the ages of 15 and 19, were reportedly shot in the area of Reservoir and Trumbull avenues in Bridgeport on Sept. 10.

One victim, who was identified as 26-year-old Christopher Pettway, of Bridgeport, was shot in the back and died a short while later, police said.

The other three men were shot in the butt, femur and possibly the eye, but all are expected to recover from the injuries, police said.

Police arrested Roderick “Riki” Rodgers on Monday. Rodgers was charged with one count of murder and four counts of attempted murder.

Juwan Edwards, 15, suffered a gunshot wound to his buttocks; Aijaholn Tisdale, 19, who was shot in the leg; and Leroy Shaw, 15, was shot in the leg. All are from Bridgeport and none of the injuries were life threatening.

Police also said Tamir Hamilton, 19, of Bridgeport came forward and reported being grazed in the ankle by a bullet.

Police say the shooting happened near the intersection of Reservoir and Trumbull avenues at around 2:30 p.m. near the Trumbull Gardens apartment complex. They aren’t releasing many details from their investigation, but witnesses say they heard gunshots and ran inside their houses. Other witnesses say they saw two people flee from the scene after the shooting.
