Fourth suspect arrested in West Ga. student’s shooting

A task force located a fourth suspect in the recent shooting death of a University of West Georgia student, police say.

Christopher Angel Fussell, 18, was arrested Thursday at a residence on Maltese Drive in Atlanta, U.S. Marshals Southeastern Regional Task Force spokesman James Joyner said.

Seniya Asford-Conner, Shadeed Dunson and Arpege Jackson, all 18, were arrested Oct. 31, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported.

Asford-Conner and Jackson were both students at the University of West Georgia. Dunson is from Fulton County.

The four people are accused of trying to rob 23-year-old Tyler Ford and shooting him outside his apartment Oct. 26.

Ford heard a knock at the front door, went to open it and was shot in his River Pointe Apartments unit on Lovvorn Road in Carrollton, officials said. Investigators said they found cash and marijuana on the floor next to Ford’s body.
