An arrest has been made in the Christmas Day shooting death in Hamburg.

Chief Johnny Oliver said Damian Davis, 25, of Hamburg, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm in connection with that case.

Todd Martin, 33, of Crossett was shot and killed while in his vehicle leaving a family member’s house at 407 Chicago St., according to a report from Arkansas State Police Department.

At the time, the investigators had no leads, but Oliver said Hamburg Police Department has worked with Arkansas State Police to investigate the case.

He added that the case is still under investigation and he suspects

more arrests will be made in the future.

Davis is currently being detained at the Ashley County Detention Center on a

$250,000 bond.

Oliver said officials have no other information to release at this time.
