A man wanted for murder in a fatal shooting in a DeKalb County parking lot more than a year ago has turned himself in, officials said.

Torre Dongrell Harris, 22, of Stonecrest, surrendered at the DeKalb sheriff’s office on a warrant charging him with malice murder, spokeswoman Cynthia Williams said Monday in a news release.

Harris was wanted on charges stemming from the shooting death of 24-year-old Jai Hayes, who was found in a car in a shopping center parking lot in the early morning hours of March 18, 2020.

At the time, no suspects had been identified and DeKalb police were leading the investigation. Williams did not say when the murder warrant was taken out against Harris or what led him to turn himself in.

Harris was booked into the DeKalb County Jail, where he remains without bond.
