Wesley had been on run since the shooting that killed Lequinton Montrell Lomax. The incident happened Saturday around 11:30 p.m. on Wolf Circle.

After turning himself in, Wesley was processed at the police department and transported to the Marengo County Detention Center to await a bond hearing, Reese said.
