LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Antwone Davenport, 33, was arrested for the August 2020 shooting death of Mykel Waide.

The US Marshals located and arrested Davenport in Illinois.

Davenport has been charged with murder, wanton endangerment in the first degree, and possession of handgun by convicted felon. He is currently lodged in the Fayette County Detention Center.

In late September, Lexington Police also arrested Tayte Patton, 22, and Antonio Turner, 19, for the August 16, 2020 shooting death of Mykel Waide.

Patton and Turner were both charged with murder and wanton endangerment in the first degree.

On December 13, charges against Patton in this case were dismissed after a grand jury refused to indict him on the murder of Waide.

On Sunday, August 16, 2020, officers responded to the deadly shooting on the 1000 block of Newtown Court. Waide, 18, of Lexington, was shot and killed.

In the days that followed his death, family and friends gathered at Douglass Park to release balloons in memory of Kel.

Waide was a 2020 graduate of Tates Creek High School and former high school basketball player.

This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact police by calling (859) 258-3600.
