Terry Donnell Turner
BAKERSFIELD — One of the men suspected of trying to shoot and kill another man in southwest Bakersfield earlier this month has turned himself into police.
Terry Donnell Turner, 34, who turned himself in to investigators at around 2 p.m. on December 16, at the Bakersfield Police Department, was booked into the Kern County Jail on charges of attempted murder, conspiracy, various weapons charges and gang participation.
According to the BPD, Turner is one of two suspects that were involved in an attempted murder that occurred on December 2, 2015 in the 3900 Block of Panama Lane.
It was on that day at a little after midnight that officers said they arrived on scene and discovered an adult male had been shot at, while driving his vehicle.
Although officers said the victim was not struck by the gunfire, his vehicle had been hit by bullets several times, causing him to crash into a brick wall.
A second vehicle, allegedly driven by Turner and 29-year-old Lemar Dwayne Williams, was also involved in a crash, but was abandoned on roadway while they fled from the scene on foot. “A search of that vehicle was conducted by officers and two firearms were located inside,” Public Information Officer Gary Carruesco said. “A further investigation also led to the identification of the two suspects and warrants were issued for their arrest.”
Williams still remains at large.
