Two teenagers have been charged with murder after the shooting death of another teen during a robbery on Easter Sunday, authorities said.

The first suspect was arrested the same night the crime occurred, Brookhaven police said in a news release. Jervano Johnson, 19, of Norcross, was taken into custody at his home Sunday evening.

The second suspect was arrested two days later. Bre’On Harold Corbin, 17, of Lawrenceville, was arrested by the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office during a traffic stop near his home Tuesday, agency spokeswoman Cynthia Williams said in a news release.

Both teenagers are facing counts of murder and armed robbery, officials said.

The two teens are charged in the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Domingo Paco-Camacho and robbery of 17-year-old Kevin Daniel Pano-Galvez at an apartment complex on Buford Highway, officials said. Both Paco-Camacho and Pano-Galvez are residents of Brookhaven. According to the initial investigation, the pair robbed the victims of cash, a cellphone and drugs.

Police responded to the Highland Knoll Apartments around 7 p.m. and found Paco-Camacho suffering from a gunshot wound, Brookhaven police spokesman Lt. David Snively said. Responding officers attempted to give him first aid, but he was declared dead at the scene by emergency medical personnel.

According to Snively, the murder investigation was assisted by the presence of license plate reader cameras.

“To date, the cameras have directly contributed to dozens of arrests, including in two homicide cases,” Snively said.

Several witnesses were able to provide descriptions of the suspects and their cars during the initial investigation.

Both suspects were taken into custody without incident, officials said. They have each been booked into the DeKalb County Jail, where they remain without bond.
