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.
