Muskegon Heights fugitive found in Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The search is over for the Muskegon Heights man accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend and a man she was with at a Muskegon convenience store.

Jaraun Render, 22, surrendered peacefully Thursday Nov. 16 outside a house on Grandville Ave. SW in Grand Rapids.  

Render was wanted for firing multiple bullets into 19 year old ex-girlfriend Linda Jamerson and her 26 year old companion Dajaun Edison outside the Sunny Mart Store on East Apple Avenue.  He then drove away with 3 small children in his car.

The children were found unharmed Wednesday night at a home on McReynolds Avenue in Grand Rapids. Render was tracked to Grandville Ave and captured about 2:30 p.m.

“He came out and was arrested without incident,” explains Captain Geoff Collard of the Grand Rapids Police Department.  “He was willing to shoot people in the city of Muskegon and anytime someone is willing to do that it poses a risk. He is in custody and unable to hurt anyone else right now.”

Police say Linda Jamerson is still in critical condition with multiple gunshot wounds.

Her companion, Dajaun Edison, is now in fair condition. Jaraun Render is facing assault with intent to murder and various firearms charges.

Render is due in court on Friday for charges of assault with intent murder.
