Police - Media Releases 7/23/2021 Public's Assistance Sought in Locating Accused Murderer Travis Harris


The police department is asking for the public's assistance in locating convicted armed robber and accused murderer Travis Harris, 30, who has outstanding warrants charging him with the July 10, 2018 fatal shooting of Quinton Brooks, 24, in a parking lot of the McFerrin Community Center on Grace Street and felon in possession of a handgun.

Following his July 29, 2018 arrest for Brooks' murder, Harris, who had been on parole for a 2011 aggravated robbery, was later jailed at the Hardeman County Correctional Facility to serve the remainder of his sentence while he awaited trial in Nashville. Hardeman County late Wednesday sent Harris to Robertson County on a detainer for failure to pay child support. Robertson County did not know that the state also had a detainer on Harris for murder in Nashville. Harris was released on Thursday since he no longer had any further charges in Robertson County.

Harris is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone seeing Harris or knowing his whereabouts is urged to contact the Department of Emergency Communications at 615-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward.
