Brown did not provide a motive, but confirmed that investigators were able to identify a suspect following the shooting.
Burnett was apprehended Thursday without incident at a Chevron on Cleveland Avenue, Brown said. The gas station is less than a mile from where the shooting took place.
“We want to thank Zone 3 Crime Suppression Unit for doing an outstanding job on apprehending this dangerous murder suspect and getting him off the streets, thus making our city that much safer,” police said in a statement.
Burnett is being held at the Fulton County Jail without bond.
