Three Indicted in Parkway Village Killing

Aug. 5, 2019 – Three men have been indicted on fist-degree murder and other charges in the shooting death of a 42-year-old Parkway Village man and the attempted robbery of his son in January, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
The defendants – Dareon Brown, 26, Junior Johnson Jr., 22, and Marquan Perry, 22 – are under indictment for first-degree murder, murder in the perpetration of a robbery, attempted first-degree murder, and attempted aggravated robbery.
An investigation showed that on Jan. 26, 2019, Mariko Faulkner and his 20-year-old son were in a vehicle in the Shadowbrook Townhomes area near Getwell Road and Winchester Road when they were confronted by three men who attempted to rob them.
When the victim attempted to drive away, he was shot several times through the windshield with an assault rifle, while another suspect attempted to take his son’s wallet. The father later died from his wounds.
The case is being handled by Asst. Dist. Attys. Stephanie Johnson and Will Cranford.
