  Tyler Police Investigators along with FBI agents obtained an Arrest Warrant for the arrest of 28 year old Korrenthin Dwayne Baker, of Tyler for the Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon on Presley Williams that occurred on the 2400 block Madison Street. 

  Investigators received information that Korrenthin Baker was involved in a disturbance at the Madison late Monday night, September 25. In that incident Baker was run off the property. 

  A Black Male suspect returned around 4:05 a.m., on Tuesday and shot four subjects at the residence.  The suspect information given to investigators led them to the identity of Korrenthin Baker. 

  Late Tuesday night, investigators picked up Baker for questioning and obtained evidence linking him to the shooting of the victims.  Baker was identified by a witness at the location of the shooting.  Investigators recovered a 9mm handgun that, they say, had been in the possession of Baker on the night of the incident. Bakers clothing also matched the clothing description of the suspect that returned to 2410 Madison and fired the shots.

   Baker was taken into custody without incident and transported to Smith County Jail, bond was set at $1,000,000.00 by Judge Jack Skeen.  Additional charges are pending upon further investigation.

  Two people were killed and another two are critically injured in the morning shooting in Tyler. It happened around 4:00 a.m. at the 2000th Block of Madison Street. That's right off Highway 155 in what is known as the St. Louis Community.  

  Two men are in critical condition at a local hospital. They are George Douglas Cain, 38 and Presley William Williams, 49.  Police say they found Gary Wayne Mosley, 50 shot and killed.   A woman was also killed.  She's identified as Unnice Rogers, 41. 

When Tyler police arrived at the residence early Tuesday morning they found Rogers shot to death inside the home. Mosley was found outside on the front porch. It didn't take long for a crowd of people to surround the scene, all wondering who that person on the porch was.   Knowing Mosley often hung out at that home and sat on the front porch, Mosley's family says they knew it was him.  

"He was a very nice person, very caring," said Tenton Mosley, Gary Mosley's brother. "I guess he got caught up at the wrong place at the wrong time." Mosley's brother Tenton Mosley says he's not sure why the shooting occurred.

"I don't know a whole lot about it, but there was some activity over there that I guess wasn't legal," said Tenton Mosley. "Maybe it was just some place he shouldn't have been."   Mosley's family members are now turning to each other for support.

"He (the suspected shooter) took a very kind person, someone that we loved dearly," said Felicia Mosley, Gary Mosley's sister in law. "He took, I mean that was a father. That was a son and a friend for a lot of people. He lost his life for nothing. "

"We need to stop this senseless violence and all this stuff because it makes no sense whatsoever," said Tenton Mosley. Police say two men were also inside the home at the time of the shooting. The men's family told KLTV, the two are brothers and were not injured at the time of the shooting.  Right now, Tyler police are following up on some leads and were not release any further information.
