VIDEO: Surveillance footage shows moments before NW Atlanta homicide

Police released surveillance video Friday that shows the moments before a northwest Atlanta homeowner was shot and killed last month. 

Jeremie Charles died on Dec. 3, 2018, after being shot by two men in the 1900 block of Main Street, Atlanta police said. 

The video appears to show Charles and a man talking to each other before a fight between the two breaks out. Charles appears to be holding a gun, but no shots are fired as the two struggle for it. 

A third man standing a few feet away then pulls out a handgun, points it at Charles and shoots him, police said. The video cuts off before a shot is fired, and it’s unknown how many shots were fired.

Spencer Douglas Henry, 50, of Decatur, was arrested 10 days later, and police believe he drove the two suspects seen in the video to and from the scene in a black Dodge truck.

Henry faces charges of felony murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a felony, according to Fulton County Jail records. He remains in jail without bond.

Anyone with information on the other two suspects is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 404-577-8477 or online at Tips can be sent anonymously and information that leads to an arrest and indictment in this investigation can earn tipsters up to $2,000.
