Sergeant David Mascaro of the JPSO Criminal Intelligence Center was notified on Wednesday, July 11, 2012, by members of the Bexar County Sheriff's Office near San Antonio, Texas seeking assistance on a double homicide that occurred in their jurisdiction. Mascaro learned that on Tuesday, July 10, 2012, two black males arrived at a used car dealership in a green Honda Accord. An argument ensued resulting in three individuals being shot. Two of the victims died on-scene. Investigators identified Donderick Walker, B/M, 23 and his brother, Doran Walker, B/M, 28 as persons of interest in the crime. The brothers were believed to be driving a green, 2001 Honda Accord TX plate, DP2P943 and a white, 2008 Infinity coupe TX plate, DF3P042. Texas investigators had reason to believe that the subjects had ties to the Westbank of Jefferson Parish and that they may have been enroute to the area.

On July 11, 2012, one of our ALPR camera locations recorded the aforementioned vehicles entering our area. Later that same day, investigators located both vehicles unoccupied in the 6500 block of Millender Dr. in Marrero. Surveillance was conducted on both vehicles. Shortly thereafter, investigators observed a male subject exit the white Infinity and entered the Honda Accord which was registered to Doran Walker. As both vehicles departed the location, Lieutenant Todd Vignes followed the Honda Accord and requested assistance from the Patrol Division to stop the vehicle knowing Doran Walker was wanted on outstanding attachments. After doing so, Doran Walker was placed under arrest without incident.
Investigators attempted to locate Donderick Walker and/or the white Infinity, but to no avail. Doran Walker was eventually booked at the JPCC as a fugitive in the homicide investigation in Texas.

As investigators continued searching for Donderick Walker, Walker's mother, Vishandis Walker B/F, 44, of 6525 Millender Dr. in Marrero contacted them on Friday, July 20, 2012 to alert them that Donderick was in Mandeville and wished to turn himself in. Sergeant Mascaro and Detective Shook traveled to Mandeville and met with Donderick in the parking lot 3900 LA Hwy 22. Donderick was placed under arrest and taken into custody by St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office Corporal Eric Pierson. Donderick Walker was booked as a fugitive from Texas. Both Doran & Donderick were turned over to Texas authorities. Donderick and Doran Walker were charged with two counts of murder and one count of aggravated assault. Donderick Walker pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated assault for his role in the homicides and shooting. He was sentenced to 15 years at hard labor. Doran Walker was convicted of one count of murder, one count of manslaughter and one count of aggravated assault. He will be sentenced at a later date.
