Memphis, TN – A 27-year-old man has been arrested and charged in the shooting death of a Tennessee truck driver along Interstate 269 which occurred in the early morning hours on Wednesday.

On Thursday, the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office said James Huddleston, of Millington, TN, has been charged with several felonies, including first-degree murder, in connection with the shooting death of Big M Transportation truck driver Dajuante Stuart, 30, of Hermitage.

On Wednesday morning, authorities found Stuart inside the cab of his tractor-trailer dead from a gunshot wound.

Investigators say the big rig was parked along the shoulder of I-269 near Macon Road when authorities made the discovery.

 

Detectives were able to retrieve and review video footage from Stuart’s in-cab camera which led them to release multiple images (from the video) of a “person of interest” in the case.

According to multiple reports, Huddleston was seen walking along the roadway Wednesday morning near where the shooting took place.
