Special Response Team officers Tuesday afternoon arrested suspected double murderer Tramell R. Sparkman in Spring Hill a short time after he was indicted by the Davidson County Grand Jury for the May 23rd shooting deaths of Brandon Jordan, 22, and Eric Allen, 38, at 526 S. 8th Street in the James Cayce public housing development.
Investigation by Detective Paul Harris led to the indictment of Sparkman, 28, of Evelyn Street in Columbia, Tennessee. Robbery appears to be a motive.
Officers responding to a shots fired call at 12:50 a.m. on May 23rd found Jordan lying on the ground near the apartment’s front porch with a gunshot wound to his upper body. Allen was found just inside the doorway with multiple gunshot wounds to his upper chest.
Sparkman is also under indictment for gunfire while trying to break into an Electric Avenue home in the early morning hours of May 23rd, and for shooting a man on Cleveland Street in the early morning hours of May 24th.
