Man arrested at Norcross hotel after returning to scene of fatal shooting, cops say

One man is dead and another is in police custody following a shooting inside a Norcross hotel, according to Gwinnett County police.

Demetrius Tyree Martin, 33, was arrested and charged with malice murder in connection with the fatal shooting, which happened Saturday evening at the Norcross Inn and Suites, authorities said.

Officers were initially dispatched to the hotel in the 6600 block of Bay Circle on a “trouble unknown” call, police spokeswoman Officer Hideshi Valle said. When they arrived shortly after 8:50 p.m., they found the victim dead inside room 229.

Investigators said the shooting stemmed from a domestic incident. At some point, “multiple shots” were fired into the room, hitting the man. The victim’s name was not released.

Martin initially left the scene of the shooting, but returned while investigators were there. In addition to malice murder, he is charged with aggravated assault.

An investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on the case can contact Gwinnett police at 770-513-5300.
