A man faces two counts of felony murder after allegedly shooting and killing his cousin and another person during a drug deal gone wrong, police said.
Isaac Cullins, 23, was arrested Wednesday and accused of shooting his cousin, Lamisha Cullins, and Gamaya Hampton on Nov. 14, Atlanta police said in a news release.
She allegedly organized a drug sale between Hampton and her cousin, and the situation escalated into a shooting at the Chevron gas station at Pryor Road and University Avenue just before 11 p.m., the release said.
All three sustained gunshot wounds, but Lamisha Cullins and Hampton died at the scene, AJC.com previously reported. Isaac Cullins was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Cullins remains at Grady and will be booked into the Fulton County Jail upon his release, Fulton County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said.
He was out on a $7,100 bond for obstruction of an officer and drug charges in October, according to jail records.
