DESOTO, Texas — Three suspects have been arrested and one is wanted in the July 2022 shooting death of a DeSoto man in July 2022, officials announced Friday. 

The DeSoto Police Department said 20-year-old Deharvian Arthur, of Arlington, 23-year-old Xavier Dixon, of Dallas, and 23-year-old Calap Williams, of Arlington, have all been charged with capital murder in the death of 24-year-old Theo Stith.

One suspect, identified as 22-year-old Edron Blacknell, of Cedar Hill, remains at-large, officials say. 

Just before 2 a.m. on July 15, DeSoto police officers were called to a home in the 600 block of Canyon Place after reports of a shooting. When officers arrived, they found Stith dead inside.
