Troopers reopen I-85 after homicide suspect surrenders

Posted April 27, 2010

— North Carolina troopers reopened a stretch of Interstate 85 in Davidson County Tuesday after they caught an "armed and dangerous" man suspected of homicide and arson in South Carolina.

"The suspect, who has been identified as Arthur Duval Mims, 45, of 823 Terrance Creek Drive, S.C., has surrendered to authorities," Sgt. Jeff Gordon wrote in a statement to the media.

Davidson County is southwest of Greensboro.

Multiple media outlets report that authorities responding to reports of an early morning shooting at a home in Duncan found the house on fire. Deputies say one person in the home was dead and another was injured.

Authorities said they chased Mims up I-85 from Spartanburg County.

    One of the troopers would have to do something wrong for this to be a "big" story on this site

    No kidding! I heard about this on the radio earlier this morning and thought it would be major breaking news on WRAL! What gives? I could hardly find it...

    I can't believe this isn't a bigger story! Traffic is backed up for 10-15 MILES in each direction! They aren't searching for this guy either, he's sitting in his truck - armed. It's a standoff.
