Authorities in Atlanta have made a third arrest to the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old boy that occurred on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway in May.
Marcus Foley, 46, is the latest individual to be taken into custody. The incident, which unfolded outside a business strip in the Center Hill neighborhood, claimed the life of young Dominic McKibbins.
Foley’s charges include murder and aggravated assault, along with several offenses linked to gang activities.
However, the police haven’t yet disclosed the specifics of Foley’s involvement in McKibbins’ shooting. Prior to this, authorities had already detained two younger individuals – 19-year-old Quintavious Williams and 17-year-old Kameron Kindred – in connection with the same case.
As their search for additional participants in the shooting continues, the Atlanta Police Department has also unveiled new surveillance footage associated with the investigation.
Joann McKibbins, Dominic’s grandmother, had previously spoken to reporters at the scene of the shooting in May. She described Dominic, who had just celebrated his 18th birthday, as a gentle and kind-hearted individual. She shared her belief that only someone utterly devoid of empathy could cause him harm.
Jail records reveal that both Williams and Kindred are facing murder and gang-related charges, similar to Foley. These charges suggest their actions were meant to enhance their standing within a criminal street gang.
Williams also faces additional charges of attempting to commit a felony and simple battery, while Kindred is accused of the same felony attempt and aggravated assault.
Joann McKibbins mentioned that she was not completely sure about the events leading up to the shooting. She hinted at the possibility that the incident may have transpired following a music recording session.
