Third suspect surrenders in death of wedding guest outside Atlanta club

The third suspect accused of killing a wedding guest outside a private Atlanta club is in custody, the Fulton County District Attorney’s office said Friday. But a week after his indictment, the fourth suspect has not yet surrendered. 

Two young suspects previously charged and two 15-year-old juveniles were indicted by a grand jury last week, two months after they allegedly shot and killed Christian Broder near the Captal City Club in north Atlanta on July 8. 

Jayden Myrick, 18, and Torrus Fleetwood, 19, were previously arrested and remained Friday in the Fulton jail, where they were being held without bond. The grand jury also indicted two 15-year-olds, Kevan Reeves and Montavious Lovejoy, who had not previously been charged in the case.

Jadyn Myrick, 17, and Torrus Fleetwood, 19, are charged in the shooting death of a young father outside Capital City Club.

The DA’s office previously said Reeves and Lovejoy were expected to surrender Thursday. Lovejoy was in custody Friday at a youth detention center, where he is being held because of his age. But Reeves is not expected to turn himself in until next week due to “procedural reason,” the DA’s office said. 

No details have been released about the alleged roles Lovejoy and Reeves played in Broder’s death. But investigators have said Myrick was the suspected gunman and Fleetwood was the getaway driver. All four suspects are believed to have gang ties. 

A restaurant executive, Broder, 34, lived in Washington, D.C., but was in Atlanta to attend a wedding. Around 12:15 a.m. as he and three others waited outside the gates of the Capital City Club near Brookhaven, they were approached by a vehicle they believed to be their Uber driver, police previously said. 

Instead, investigators say Myrick got out of a stolen 2014 Dodge Charger and demanded their belongings at gunpoint, according to a police report. As Broder followed Myrick and tried to negotiate with him, Myrick shot him the stomach, police said. Broder later died from his injuries.

An investigation by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution revealed that both Myrick and Fleetwood had recent criminal records, but they were not in jail because both had been granted leniency.
