Man charged with murder in suspected gambling house shooting

A 22-year-old man has been charged with murder for a shooting at a suspected gambling house in the West End, Atlanta police said Wednesday.

Raphael Kenyon Johnson, who already was in the Fulton County Jail on other charges related to the case, was charged with murder Tuesday.

Two men were shot at what police believe was an illegal gaming house in the 700 block of Poole Place on Aug. 13. Another man complained of chest pains, police said. All three were transported to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Gunshot victim Frederick Burke died at Grady on Aug. 22, Atlanta police spokeswoman Officer Kim Jones said.

In addition to murder, Johnson is charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a felony, according to jail records.
