A 17-year-old was arrested Friday in connection with an armed robbery and shooting outside an Atlanta country club, police said.
Jayden Myrick is charged with three counts of aggravated assault, one count of aggravated battery and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
The arrest comes two days after police released a surveillance video and sketch of the suspect they believed was linked to the shooting and increased the reward for information leading to his capture to $10,000.
But police said Friday they no longer believe the man in the video, who was connected to a carjacking in Forest Park, is Myrick.
The victim, Christian Broder, 34, 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.
When Broder tried to negotiate, police said Myrick shot him in the stomach.
According to a GoFundMe page, Broder is in critical condition in the intensive care unit at Piedmont Hospital and has undergone multiple lifesaving operations.
He is the general manager of several Washington D.C.-area restaurants, including Millie’s, a well-known California Baja-style restaurant.
Investigators are still working to identify and arrest the driver of the car involved in the incident.
