Jaquan DeShawn Marray Griggs turned himself into Dallas County Monday morning around 11am.
Griggs was wanted for the murder of Quintuis Amos, 19 who was found shot several times at the bottom of Meadow Creek apartment stairways Saturday March 17.
Witnesses told police they heard arguing before they heard the gunshots go off.
When authorities arrived they saw Amos lying on the ground and paramedics pronounced him dead on the scene.
Griggs and his attorney appeared in Frank Crowley court Monday morning as he turned himself in. His attorney is possibly looking towards self defense.
A court date has not yet been scheduled and Griggs Bond was set at $1 million dollars.
Smh!! A damn shame young black ignorant thugs!! Killing each other for nothing!! And most of y’all parents know damn well ur kids ain’t living right,but don’t do a damn thing till their in prison or dead!! Cry and hug ur kids and teach them right before hand! And who am I to judge?? Im a born and raised Oak Cliff Texas woman and this mess has been going on since I was a teen. Most of my classmates were murdered,my brother was murdered in 1994. And guess what? Most of the parents were not teaching these children appropriately. No concern of what they do when they leave the home,Taking their drug money,knowing their child is part of a gang,,etc etc etc… Its time to stop this generational black ignorance. All these children murdered are not innocent.. They out here running around being hood rats. And white America is sitting back laughing at our black stupidity!! And guess what? They building more prisons and cemeteries just for us… Smh! How could raise a child to want to just grow up to be a thug or ratchet bitch with 6 baby daddies…Something is wrong with the parenting and the environments that u continue to raise ur children.. Do something now!!! I was teen mom of two and they were raised pretty much in Oak Cliff. Same hood as me.. But guess what? My kids are 23 and 25 so great with life.. My son is not a thug and my daughter is not a ratchet stripper thot. No teen pregnancy, hell no cavities!! But it took a village, not just me. Mom, Dad Grandma’s and Grandpa’s and Aunties. All from the hood. But we chose to be better people, and do better by staying on these kids ass day in and day out.. Day in and day out of good morals and values. Preaching till Im blue in the face, monitoring their activities, and explaining to them that one wrong decision can ruin your whole life.. Black people need to do so much better.. It breaks my heart every time I see stories like this!!! RIP young man…SMH
Please send your comments to every newspaper and magazine and all social media. You said what so many people need to hear. So beautifully written….right from your heart and soul. You are such a good role model for your children and other parents. As a middle-class caucasian raised in a small town in MI, I cannot even begin to imagine what a challenge it is to raise kids right with so many obstacles thrown in front of you every single day. Every caucasian was born on third base, no matter what their circumstances, compared to people of color born in this country. I apologize for every other caucasian who does not recognize that fact. We all need to help each other when our kids are young so that they can grow up loving each other and caring for each other. We can’t start caring when the kids get into trouble, we need to be there for each other from the first gasp of breath to the last. In America, we should ALL be born on third base, not just one race. We are all one race as we race to make America strong and proud.
Thank you Sue
I’m so glad to hear you say this you are one strong woman who decided to make a difference, I am a strong believer that this teaching start’s at home. God Bless you mom for loving your children enough to care. May the Lord bless you and keep you in his arms and hold you up.
