A trial will be held in Henry County in coming weeks for a suspect accused of killing an Atlanta teenager in a drive-by shooting in 2019.
Three people, including a 15-year-old, were initially charged in the case. Murder charges were later dropped against one person initially charged but remain pending for Christopher Elijah Womack, whose trial date is tentatively scheduled for Dec. 4, court records showed.
The April 2019 arrests come after the death of 17-year-old Larry Bernard Bryant, who was killed in what is believed to be a targeted drive-by shooting in February of that year.
Police said Bryant was visiting a friend in Stockbridge on Feb. 28, 2019. They were walking in the 100 block of Springwood Valley Road when a light-colored car approached, according to Henry County police.
A “dispute occurred,” and Bryant was shot around 10 p.m., officials said. He was found dead at the scene. The girl he was walking with was not injured.
