A man was recently arrested in connection with a fatal shooting at a southwest Atlanta apartment complex in September, police said.

A suspect has been arrested two months after a deadly shooting at a southwest Atlanta apartment complex near I-285, authorities said.

Kadeem Frison, 33, of Austell, is facing murder and aggravated assault charges in connection with the Sept. 19 death of 49-year-old Darryl Chambers, who was shot several times in the head and torso at the Hidden Pines apartments, according to an arrest warrant obtained Wednesday.

Officers were called to the complex on Cushman Circle, just inside I-285 near the intersection of Boulder Park and Martin Luther King Jr. drives, after getting reports of a person shot, police said.

Police said Chambers was found unresponsive and pronounced dead at the scene.

According to the warrant, Frison allegedly committed the crime with other “co-conspirators.” He was arrested by Cobb County police Saturday and later transferred and booked into the Fulton County Jail, online records show. He is also charged with possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of or attempt to commit certain felonies.

A motive is still unclear, and police have not provided additional details on the shooting or the other suspects.

Since 2019, Frison had been arrested on drug charges and charges related to cruelty to children and aggravated assault in Cobb, court records show. The latest incident allegedly occurred last month.
