“Later in the day, investigators learned Mr. Nyambo was possibly in southwest Atlanta and contacted Zone 3 for assistance,” the release said. “Several Zone 3 officers were able to locate and detain Mr. Nyambo without incident.”
Nyambo is facing charges of murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is being held in the Fulton County Jail on a U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement hold.
Homicide detectives are still working the case of a double shooting the day before Hamilton’s death. Two men were found dead Jan. 17 at a multi-family home in the 1100 block of Joseph E. Boone Boulevard in northwest Atlanta.
Both had multiple gunshot wounds, according to a police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. One of the victims was identified by police as Allen Moses, 36, and the other man’s name is not being released until his family is notified.
“While executing a search warrant, a small baggie containing a crystal-like substance which is believed to be methamphetamine was located on a night table,” an officer said in the report. “The crystal-like substance was turned into property as evidence.”
A police spokesman said Wednesday that detectives were still working to determine a motive, and no suspects had been identified.
