Three men were in custody Wednesday on suspicion of kidnapping a Frisco man who was found shot to death in a Dallas park during the weekend, police said Wednesday.

The fatal shooting was prompted by one man owing money to another.

The victim was identified as Trevis Henderson, 22, of Frisco, who was found dead Monday at Rochester Park, 3000 Municipal St., in Dallas.

Witnesses told police that Henderson was kidnapped Sunday night in the 2300 block of Stemmons Trail in Dallas. The Frisco man was forced into a sports utility vehicle by armed men, an arrest warrant states.

Dallas officers and investigators tracked the SUV to an apartment complex. When the vehicle showed up at the complex, Dallas police interviewed the driver, Jeremie Newsom, 26, of Dallas, the affidavit states.

After agreeing to go with officers to police headquarters, Newsom confessed to kidnapping Henderson, the warrant states. Police then arrested Newsom. Investigators also determined that LaQuan Hughes, 34, of Dallas and David Langston, 40, address unknown, were involved, the warrant states.

Newsom said that Hughes was armed with a shotgun at the time Henderson was kidnapped, the warrant states. Henderson owed Hughes "a sum of money," Newsom told investigators.

Police arrested Hughes early Wednesday. Langston was already in jail on an unrelated aggravated assault charge, police said.

The warrants charged the three with kidnapping, police said, they had had not been charged with Henderson's homicide at the present time.
