The suspect wanted for the fatal shooting over the weekend in West 7th entertainment district turned himself in on Monday, Fort Worth Police said.

Karlove Palmer, 29, is in custody at the Tarrant County Jail on a murder charge in connection to the death of 29-year-old Bryson Rodgers, according to the Fort Worth Police Department.

Officers responded around 10:15 p.m. Saturday to the 2900 block of Crockett Street in the West 7th entertainment district. They found Rodgers with multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to a hospital, but died from his injuries.

Police said that Rodgers and Palmer were involved in an altercation when Palmer pulled out a gun and opened fire. Palmer had fled before police arrived at the scene.

Palmer turned himself in on Monday. His bond amount was pending.

Fort Worth’s West 7th entertainment district has been in the spotlight after the murder of a TCU student there last fall. In response, the city has adopted plans to improve safety in the area by creating an ambassador patrol program, increasing police presence and adding street lights, according to CBS News.
