Cville Man Wanted on Murder Charge in Relation to Al Hamraa Stabbing
Charlottesville police are asking for your help to find a man now wanted for murder in connection to the stabbing at Al Hamraa restaurant on May 10.
Authorities say the fugitive Taneak Turner should be considered armed and dangerous. A wanted poster of Turner was originally released last week for a shooting investigation in Charlottesville. Tuesday, police issued an update saying Turner is responsible for the city's first homicide of the year.
Turner, 19, is charged with first-degree murder of 30-year-old Antonio Lamar Washington, who was fatally stabbed during an event at the Al Hamraa restaurant. Investigators say Turner was then involved in a shooting incident that occurred in the parking lot outside the restaurant.
Turner is described as six-foot-one black male, weighing about 150 pounds who has a tattoo on both wrists. Police also listed Turner’s last known address here at 613 Hinton Avenue in Charlottesville.
Two neighbors say police were parked at the end of the road and in front of the home several days ago, but told them everything was OK. They both say they don't recognize Turner.
