College Park police, in South Fulton County, Ga., have arrested 26-year-old Tyrone Kemp in connection with the July 31 murder of trans woman Tee Tee Dangerfield.
Dangerfield was shot to death inside her car outside a College Park apartment. She died on the way to the hospital.
Kemp was arrested Tuesday, Aug. 22, at the Union City car dealership where he works. WSB-TV reports that while Kemp has not confessed to the murder, he admitted to police that he was with Dangerfield in the minutes before she was killed.
Tee Tee Dangerfield was the 16th transgender person murdered this year. Waxahachie resident Gwynevere River Song, murdered in her home on Aug. 12, was the 17th.
