An Atlanta man was arrested Friday in connection with a deadly shooting at a DeKalb County gas station last week, authorities said.

Quintavious Jackson, 26, faces malice murder and armed robbery charges in the death of 39-year-old Sulaiman Jalloh, DeKalb police said.

On Oct. 15, Jalloh was found with a gunshot wound while in his vehicle outside the Marathon gas station on Gresham Road, AJC.com previously reported. By 10:30 p.m., he was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Detectives previously said they were looking for two suspects who witnesses said were seen running from the scene. It’s unclear how Jackson was tied to this homicide or whether a second suspect is still sought.

A motive has not been released.

Jackson remains in the DeKalb jail without bond, jail records show.
