Two Arrests Made in Nightclub Shooting; Two Still on the Run

PARIS, Tenn. - Two people are in custody in connection with a murder at a Henry County nightclub. Two others, including the suspected shooter, are still on the loose.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Jiles Yarbrough, 21, of Huntingdon, was arrested at a probation office in Carroll County, Wednesday. He is charged with first degree murder in the killing of 41-year-old Eric Kinley at Fahrenheit 101 early Saturday morning.

Tuesday, authorities arrested Akilah Williamson, 18, of McKenzie, and charged her with being an accessory after the fact. Officials believe Williamson, who is the girlfriend of Tevin "Jay" Lumpkin, transported Lumpkin out of Henry County after the murder.

Lumpkin, 20, is still on the loose and is wanted for first degree murder for his involvement in the shooting. He is described as a black male with brown eyes and black hair who is known to wear dread locks. He is 6’1” and weighs approximately 170 pounds. He was last seen in an older model white Pontiac Bonneville with black hubcaps and should considered armed and dangerous.

The Henry County Sheriff's Department is offering a $1,000 reward and the TBI is offering an additional $1,000 for information that leads to Lumpkin's capture. The management of Fahrenheit 101 has also added another $1,000 to the reward fund so the total stands at $3,000. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call the TBI at 1‐800‐TBI‐FIND.

Charles Liphford, 22, is also wanted on weapons charges in connection with the shooting.

Yarbrough is being held on $500,000 bond in Henry County, while Williamson's bond is $100,00 and she is housed at the Gibson County Jail.
