Jayden Myrick, 17, was arrested July 13 and 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.

Those charges were upgraded to murder Monday. He remains in the Fulton County Jail with no bond.

Broder was shot in his stomach during the armed robbery outside the Capital City Country Club on West Brookhaven Drive and Capital City Lane while waiting for an Uber on July 9.

GoFundMe page was set up to help support Broder and his family. It had raised more than $280,000 as of Monday.

He’s survived by a 9-month-old daughter and his wife, a pre-kindergarten teacher.
