Police have arrested a second man in the death of Christian Broder, the Washington, D.C. area restaurant manager shot during a robbery outside an Atlanta country club while he waited to catch an Uber.

Torrus Fleetwood, 19, of Atlanta, was arrested Thursday morning in connection with the July 8 crime, Atlanta police spokesman Officer Jarius Daughtery said.

“Investigators believe he was the driver of the suspect vehicle during this robbery and shooting,” Daugherty said.

Fleetwood faces charges of murder, armed robbery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He waived his first court appearance Friday and was denied bond.

Police earlier arrested Jayden Myrick, the alleged shooter, on charges of aggravated assault, aggravated battery and possessing a firearm during the commission of a crime. Authorities added a charge of murder when Broder died nearly two weeks later.

When Broder tried to negotiate, police said Myrick shot him in the stomach.

An AJC investigation found that Myrick had been released early from a sentence for a robbery he committed when he was 14.

Broder, a 34-year-old father to a 9-month-old baby girl, was a wedding guest at Capital City Country Club on West Brookhaven Drive and Capital City Lane. He and three others were waiting for an Uber outside the club when a car pulled up and Myrick got out with a gun and demanded all of their possessions, police said.

Broder, an Atlanta native who went to Woodward Academy, was shot in the stomach and underwent several surgeries. He died in a D.C. hospital July 21 after being transferred from Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta.

Fleetwood was arrested in January 2016 in Clayton County on charges of making terroristic threats, obstruction of a police officer and battery on a police officer. He pleaded guilty about a year later and received a three-year sentence – six months in jail and 2½ years on probation.

Fulton County court records show that Fleetwood was also arrested on June 26, 2016, for robbery by force and other charges, including battery and gang activity.

Seven months later, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two years in prison and three years on probation. He was credited with time served and released on Jan. 31, 2017.

A Clayton County judge revoked his probation in March of this year and ordered him to spend 30 days in jail. The details of the probation violation do not appear in court records.
