The 17-year-old suspect who was wanted for ki*lling a school friend last week outside of the annual Griffin-Spalding High football game has been caught.
The Gryphon Police Department and Special Operations and STING Unit of Spalding County have been looking for Kaomarion Kendrick since the day of the shooting, according to the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office.
They found him in a neighbourhood in Henry County on Saturday and asked the Narcotics Unit in Henry County for help.
Kendrick was sitting in a car in the driveway of a house in the county. Their agents were able to positively identify him before he got into the car and drove off.
Soon after, as the car was leaving the subdivision, it was stopped. Kendrick was quickly taken into custody, even though he had a Glock with him at the time.
He was transported to Spalding County Jail and is being held without bond.
The Spalding County Medical Examiner said the victim was Emmanuel Dorsey, who was 14 years old. The boy’s mother, Charlotte Williams, said he was a freshman at Gryphon High School.
Williams also told FOX 5 Atlanta that her son had never been to a football game before.
No one knows why Kendrick is said to have k*illed Dorsey.
