A third suspect was arrested Friday afternoon in the death of a Gwinnett County man fatally shot while sitting in his driveway.
Abraham Quintanar, 15, was the third and final suspect wanted by police in connection with 28-year-old Marcus Gilead’s death. Gilead was found in a vehicle outside his Wrenwood Court home and died at a hospital Monday night.
Two other suspects, 20-year-old Miguel Angel Gonzalez and 17-year-old Sebastian Resendiz-Garcia, are already in custody. All three are accused of targeting Gilead in an attempted robbery, according to Gwinnett police.
Resendiz-Garcia was arrested Thursday, and Walton County sheriff’s deputies caught up with Gonzalez on Friday morning at his home on Bunny Court.
Quintanar was aware that the police department was looking for him and was “actively evading arrest,” Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. Collin Flynn said. He was taken into custody just before 2 p.m.
Flynn said detectives have been working long hours to identify the people responsible for Gilead’s death. After collecting evidence and speaking to witnesses, detectives had enough probable cause to arrest Resendiz-Garcia and Gonzalez, who are both from Loganville.
Quintanar, also of Loganville, was identified as a third suspect as detectives continued following up on leads, he said.
“Detectives believe that the victim in this case was specifically targeted for robbery,” Flynn said in a news release. “The victim was involved in drug activity and the two defendants had a previous history with him.”
The three suspects are facing charges of felony murder, aggravated assault, criminal attempt to commit robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Quintanar will be charged as an adult, according to police.
The 15-year-old was expected to be booked into the Gwinnett jail, where Resendiz-Garcia and Gonzalez are being held Friday.
