Cops: ‘AK-47 murder’ suspect admits shooting man on video in DeKalb

Warrants released Monday reveal new details in the death of a man who was gunned down outside a DeKalb County hotel.

Javian Nesby, 23, allegedly admitted to killing Jordan Morris, the documents say. The 22-year-old Decatur man was found dead April 12 with a bullet hole in his left cheek in the parking lot of Super Inn on Wesley Chapel Road.

Nesby “admitted he killed victim in retaliation for something victim did to defendant’s girlfriend,” the warrants say, not revealing specifics.

Michael Lamar Grier, 33, who was arrested at Atlanta Technical College, is the alleged getaway driver, the documents say.

Both men are charged with murder.

Security cameras at a gas station and the hotel captured different parts of the shooting.

Grier is seen in a Kia sedan dropping Nesby at the gas station before Nesby walks to the parking lot and starts to chase the victim, the warrants say.

The shooting, which authorities have called the “AK-47 murder,” happened around 2:30 or 3 p.m. Video shows the shooter in sunlight sprinting after the victim and then shooting him several times, according to police.
