The 19-year-old found shot to death late Thursday had been reported missing a week earlier, DeKalb County police said Friday afternoon.
The body of Derrick Jamal Linkhorn was found in a storage area of the Southern Pines apartments on Mountain View Drive, according to Mekka Parish, police spokeswoman. Detectives found the body around 11:30 p.m. Thursday, Parish said.
Linkhorn's family reported him missing March 8, police said. It was not known how long Linkhorn's body may be been at the apartment complex.
Police have charged one teenager with the homicide and are looking for two additional suspects, Parish said. Antarious Johnson, 17, is in custody, but investigators continue to search for Malcolm Wilson, 19, and Marcus Estes, 18.
The suspects were seen with the victim in a MARTA surveillance video, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Investigators believe a dispute led to the shooting, Parish said.
