DeKalb police: Lithonia Middle School student charged with murder

A 15-year-old Lithonia Middle School student was pulled from class Thursday morning and arrested on murder charges, DeKalb County police said.

His brother, 21-year-old Dwayne Honeycutt, was arrested a few days ago, police said.

The name of the 15-year-old is not being released due to his age.

Police said the arrests are in connection with the Jan. 12 shooting of a 22-year-old Gwinnett County man, who was hospitalized and later died on Feb. 4.

The shooting took place in the 3400 block of Primrose Place.
