Police arrested a man in connection to the Friday homicide of Aaron Biddle, 21 just hours after the slaying because the suspect, Jadarius Knox, 23, confessed to the shooting at the scene.
Officers dispatched to the 7800 block of Basswood Drive at 3:48 p.m. and found Biddle in front of the home, deceased from a gunshot to the head, according to court documents. Knox was standing outside and told police he shot Biddle.
The homeowner said Biddle was her ex-boyfriend and he came over to pick up some of his belongings. Her child's father, Knox, was also at the home. She said Biddle tried to start an argument with Knox after loading his belongings into a car.
Biddle then ran into the home and started punching Knox, prompting Knox to run outside and pull a firearm on Biddle.
According to the woman, Biddle said, "What are you going to do? Shoot me?" Knox then shot Biddle.
Knox confirmed the primary details of the woman's testimony, adding that he never said anything back to Biddle. He also said Biddle threw a jar at him while he was sitting on the couch playing video games before running in and punching Knox.
He said he ran outside and Biddle followed him, holding his X-Box. He also confirmed that Biddle said, "What are you going to do? Shoot me?" before he shot him.
Knox is charged with criminal homicide and is next scheduled to appear in court before General Sessions Judge Clarence Shattuck on June 5.
