MACON, Ga. – Deputies with the Bibb County sheriff’s office responding to a domestic violence call entered a Green Meadows apartment shortly before a man shot and killed his girlfriend in the early morning hours of May 5.
The suspect, Treyvon Deshun Walker, 23, allegedly shot his girlfriend, Kaneza Owens, moments after deputies entered the first floor of the couple’s apartment.
The couple were reportedly arguing on the second floor when police were called. A witness told police that the couple began to fight when Owens told Walker she was moving out. Walker allegedly did not want the relationship to end. Shots were fired as officers entered the kitchen on the way to the stairs to address the couple. Walker escaped through the back door and ran into the woodline before he was captured. Owens was taken away by ambulance.
Walker was previously charged with battery for striking Owens on the head in September 2022. He was on probation at the time of her murder. He remains in the Bibb County Jail and is charged with murder and probation violation.

[NARRATIVE #1 on May 05, 2023]
On 05-05-2023 I Deputy D Palmer along with Deputy Q Jackson was dispatched to Green Meadows Apartments located at [3800 BLOCK] Log Cabin Drive Macon-Bibb, Georgia apartment [REDACTED] in reference to a domestic violence situation.
Upon arrival I heard arguing from inside the apartment as I was walking up to the front door. It was a male and female voice. I knocked on the front door and an uninvolved black female opened it. I asked what was going on and she pointed towards the back of the house, up a flight of stairs to a second level of the home.
I started walking across the kitchen area which was located between the front door and the stairs and made it about halfway across the room when I heard gunshots. I immediately turned, exited the front door, took cover, and drew out my service pistol. I did not see the suspect or the victim and was unsure where either of them were located at the time.
Deputy Jackson radioed to dispatch that shots were fired as I was exiting the front door of the building. Deputy Jackson went inside the home, and I followed into the kitchen when he advised me the suspect had exited the back door and was outside the home and to cover the front area of the home.
I then went back outside the home and took cover behind the right corner of the building. After a second, I heard movement in the woods behind the home, so I radioed Deputy Jackson that I heard movement. Deputy Jackson then joined me on the right side of the building, and we started pushing into the wood line.
At this point backup deputies arrived on scene, so I went back into the home to secure the house. I spoke with the original female that opened the door for me and she stated that the victim’s name was [VICTIM #1] and the suspects name was Treyvon Walker.
She said that she did not know the birthdays of either but that the two both were both living in the apartment together and were in an argument because [VICTIM #1] was about to move out of the home and had informed Walker that she was not going to allow him to move in with her and that she wanted to end the relationship.
The female stated that the two had been arguing for a while. I then told everyone to leave the home and went through the house to ensure no one was still inside. After the house was secure, EMS came into the home and lifted [VICTIM #1] up with a cloth and took her to the ambulance. I assisted other deputies in putting crime scene tape around the front and back area of the home.
I then stood at the front of the home to ensure that no one entered the property. Investigator Rohrbach was one of the responding deputies to the radio traffic Deputy Jackson had transmitted. He took over the investigation from this point, and I followed him and recorded his interviews on Deputy F Gray’s body camera.
