Updated at 1:12 p.m. Monday to reflect that the suspect is now in custody. 

A man who allegedly shot and killed his ex-girlfriend is now in jail, officials say. 

According to The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office, the deadly shooting occurred around 5:45 p.m. March 3 near the 1900 block of Golden Heights Road in Haslet. 

Michael Sherrod Walker Jr., 23, faces a murder charge and an evading arrest charge in connection with the shooting, according to court records.  

Investigators say Walker Jr. went to the victim's workplace after the two got into an argument on the phone. They had recently broken up, officials say. 

Walker continued to argue with 23-year-old Atiyeh Chatmon once he arrived at her work, according to detectives. 

Authorities say the argument escalated, and that's when Walker shot Chatmon in the chest and then fled the scene. 

Detectives warned the public not to approach Walker as they searched for him because he was believed to be armed and dangerous. 

Authorities say Walker Jr. eventually turned himself in at the Tarrant County Lon Evans Correction Center. He remains in custody in lieu of a $102,500 bail, according to jail records.
