Police have made an arrest nearly three weeks after an 18-year-old was shot to death outside a friend’s resident in Clayton County, and the suspect and his girlfriend were put in handcuffs near an unusual location — Chuck E. Cheese’s.
About 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, authorities arrested Dakarai Tolbert, 24, in connection with the Dec. 21 death of Iseir George, Clayton County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
He was with his girlfriend, Corina Robertson, and their child when a deputy spotted him and arrested him in an “area away from families enjoying Chuck E. Cheese’s,” the release said. Robertson was also taken into custody and charged with harboring a fugitive.
Witnesses at the scene of the deadly shooting, which was in the 1600 block of Broad River Road, told Clayton County police they heard several gunshots before finding George shot twice. The sheriff’s office said George received a phone call asking him to come outside before he was shot and killed.
A handgun and rifle-caliber shell casing were found at the scene, police said.
Tolbert is charged with felony murder and aggravated assault, and he’s in the Clayton County Jail without bond. Robertson is also in jail on an $8,000 bond, jail records show.
