GBI finds DeKalb gas station shooting suspect — in Gwinnett jail

Drug charges in Gwinnett County led to a murder suspect’s arrest in connection with a shooting at a Clarkston gas station seven months ago. 

The GBI on Friday arrested Mumin Hajiege at the Gwinnett jail, where he had been since Sept. 7 on unrelated drug charges. 

Hajiege, 29, of Grayson, was involved in a March 17 fight with another man at a Texaco in the 3900 block of East Ponce de Leon Avenue, GBI spokesman Bahan Rich told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in an email.
