Police determined two suspects, one of whom was Newberry, had entered the man’s room with long rifles “demanding to know where the weapon belonging to one of the assailants was,” the sheriff’s office said.
When the man told the suspects he didn’t have the weapon, Newberry fired a Taser at him and shot him in the torso, according to the sheriff’s office.
Newberry was taken into custody after the sheriff’s office fugitive squad conducted surveillance on a home that he frequented on Brentwood Road in College Park.
“Fugitive Squad members knocked on the front door of the residence, where Newberry decided to raise his hands in the air and walk out of the residence without incident,” the sheriff’s office said.
Newberry was booked into the Clayton County Jail. Bond has not been set, according to jail records.
