Atlanta police investigate a deadly shooting in southeast Atlanta shortly after midnight April 13.

A second suspect has been arrested in an attempted robbery that turned deadly earlier this year in southeast Atlanta.

Demonta Teravion McNabb, 27, faces several charges, including felony murder, armed robbery and aggravated assault, in connection with the death of 19-year-old Calvin McDowell shortly after midnight April 13, according to court documents obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

That night, Atlanta police got a call about gunfire in the area of Woodland Avenue, not far from Moreland Avenue, officials said at the time. They found McDowell with a gunshot wound in the driveway of a home. He had already died.

Nearly three weeks later, 28-year-old Demetrius McDowell, the victim’s half-brother, was arrested on a slew of charges, including murder and armed robbery, the AJC previously reported.

It’s not clear what the suspects were allegedly attempting to rob. No other details have been released by police.

Both McNabb and Demetrius McDowell remain in the Fulton County jail.
