A man wanted for shooting and killing an airline employee at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Sunday turned himself in Monday morning, CBS Atlanta reported.
The man surrendered to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department after his SUV was tracked to a home in Gwinnett County, near the airport. He will be charged with murder, felony murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm by a minor, and possession of a firearm by a fugitive.
Police had originally described the suspect as a 55-year-old white man wearing a red and black jacket, and said he was armed with a handgun, but did not provide details about the firearm or the man’s connection to the victim.
At a press conference, Gwinnett County Police chief Keith Grounsell said that the suspect had fired four rounds of ammunition at a second person who was standing by his SUV at the airport’s Terminal 3. The second person was grazed by a bullet in the hip. He is not facing any charges.
According to news reports, the victim is believed to be a ramp supervisor for United Airlines.
Authorities have requested that the suspect not return to Atlanta and that people not approach him, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
