A Montgomery man has been arrested and charged in connection with Dothan’s first murder of 2021, Dothan police said Tuesday.
Christian De-Andre McCallister, 19, has been arrested and charged with murder in connection to the death of Willis Rambo Jr., 20, of Dothan on Sunday afternoon. McCallister has been booked into the Dothan City Jail and is being held without bond.
Police said as the homicide investigation continues more arrests are possible.
On Sunday, Dothan police began a homicide investigation into Rambo's death that happened in the 900 block of Morris Street around 4 p.m. When police arrived, Rambo had suffered multiple gunshot wounds, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police investigators reviewed surveillance video from the area, interviewed witnesses, and worked to locate persons of interest. One of those persons of interest was McCallister who was located in Montgomery on Monday and arrested on an unrelated warrant of breaking and entering into a vehicle in Dothan. Police added that McCallister was possibly visiting family in the area this past weekend.
In a news release, Dothan police said they would like to thank the community for help in the investigation as well as assistance from the U.S. Marshal’s Service Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force in apprehending McCallister.
