Accused Nashville murderer Terrance D. Brown is now in custody in Eureka (Humboldt County), California.
Brown, 25, was arrested Monday night at a casino hotel after security there found a substance thought to be meth in bedding that had come from his room and notified the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. Brown claimed to be someone else; however, a fingerprint check revealed his true identity and that he is a fugitive from Nashville.
Brown is under indictment for the September 8, 2012 shooting death of Dennis Prutianov on Moss Road in South Nashville. Prutianov, 26, was fatally wounded when shots were fired into his house. A second suspect, Terrence Clark, 24, was arrested in July of last year on a murder indictment and remains in the Metro Jail awaiting trial.
The murder case is not Brown’s only issue. He is also named in arrest warrants issued in October 2012 charging two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated assault. In that matter, he is accused of entering a residence in the 2500 block of Elm Hill Pike, robbing the two persons inside at gunpoint, and firing a shot at one of the victims as he fled.
Brown’s return to Nashville is pending.
