Arrest made in 2010 Labor Day double homicide

Derrick Dnorris Burden was charged earlier this month with two counts of homicide in the shooting deaths of Calvin Streater and Samuel Blizzard Jr., authorities said.

Atlanta Police Department’s fugitive unit picked up the 22-year-old Burden on Monday, authorities said. Information about the motive for the killings and how investigators were led to Burden was not immediately available.

The night of the slayings, police were called to the home of Streater, 26, in the Richmond Hill Apartments, where Blizzard, a 21-year-old Georgia State University criminal justice major, was staying temporarily. Both men were found shot dead.

Investigators believed the men knew their killer, police said at the time. There was no forced entry to the apartment, they said.

Burden is being held without bond in Fulton County Jail on charges including two counts each of murder, felony murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
