A call about a burglary led Sandy Springs police to arrest a man wanted for murder in Atlanta.

Tyree Tabor had been wanted in an Oct. 31 incident that left one man dead and another injured, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Tabor, Demarcus Hambrick and Antworn Whatley were trying to pry open a Bank of America ATM early Monday morning, according to Sandy Springs police.

“Apparently while they were trying to break into the ATM another car pulled into the parking lot, scared them and they took off running,” Sandy Springs spokesman Sgt. Sam Worsham told Channel 2.

Officers were in the area and chased the burglary suspects to a construction site, where they were arrested.

Tabor initially told police his name was Cedrick Gulley.

“When he was at the jail being fingerprinted, he came back with a different name and date of birth,” Worsham said.

Officers verified the name and birthdate and found out Tabor had a warrant out for murder, Channel 2 reported. Atlanta police also said Tabor matched the description the shooting victim gave of the suspect.

Tabor remains in the Fulton County jail on charges of murder, aggravated assault, armed robbery, burglary and giving false information to a law enforcement officer.

Hambrick and Whatley were charged with burglary, according to jail records. Whatley also faces a possession of tools for commission of a crime charge. Both remain in the Fulton County jail.
