Huntsville police arrested Bryant Davis, 23 for the murder of 39-year-old Joshua Bankston.

HPD Spokesperson Lt. Jesse Sumlin confirmed officers responded to 4896 University Dr. for a cutting call around 10:20 p.m. on March 5. Upon arrival, officers found Bankston in the parking lot of the restaurant with multiple injuries.

HEMSI arrived shortly after but pronounced Bankston dead at the scene due to his injuries.

Investigators believe the two men were in an argument that turned into a physical fight, ultimately leading to Bankston’s death. Davis was found near the scene Friday night was taken to the Criminal Investigations Division for questioning.

Davis has since been transported to the Madison County Jail and is charged with first degree murder.
