Qumentiz Marquez McKibben, 24, of Monroe, was accused of felony murder in connection with the Sunday, May 6, 2018, shooting death of Shaun Barfield.

Monroe police have issued a felony murder warrant and warned their suspect may be armed and dangerous.

Qumentiz Marquez McKibben, 24, of Monroe, is accused of felony murder in connection with the death Sunday of 33-year-old Shaun Barfield in the Tanglewood neighborhood.

McKibben is 5 feet 7 inches tall. He weighs 145 pounds, is black and has black hair and brown eyes.

Barfield was the second man in two days to be fatally shot in Tanglewood.

Darrin Bernard Barnes, 43, of Duluth, died when a fight broke out at a party at about midnight Saturday on Tanglewood Drive.

Monroe police and the Georgia State Patrol responded to 226A Tanglewood Lane at about 6 p.m. Sunday to a call of a person shot and unresponsive. The Walton County coroner’s office pronounced Barfield dead at the scene.

Police have not commented on their investigation into Barnes' death, according to The Walton Tribune.

Keith Glass, the director of public safety in Monroe, said McKibben is known to spend time in Covington and Newton County, as well as in Monroe where he lives.

Police think McKibben is armed and dangerous and urged citizens not to approach him. Instead, if you see him, call 911.

Anyone with information about where McKibben might be is urged to call Monroe police Detective C. Cannon at or 770-266-5183, or the Athens office of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation at 706-552-2309.
