Fane told investigators he went to the Waldan Pond apartment complex on Bells Ferry Road after he arranged to meet the buyer through an online app, Baker said.
However, the man took Fane’s shoes and shot him, Baker said. The man then drove off in a gold Infiniti.
Fane was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital. The Infiniti was later found abandoned off Wooten Lake Road in Cobb County, Baker said.
It’s not clear how Cherokee authorities connected Elam to the shooting. He was arrested by U.S. marshals in Stone Mountain, Baker said.
Baker said Elam is facing an additional count of armed robbery in an incident that occurred Feb. 3 at a Walmart on Bells Ferry Road. According to investigators, Elam robbed a woman at gunpoint and demanded her phone and cash.
He was taken to the DeKalb County Jail, where he remains with no bond.
