Christopher Kemp is charged with aggravated battery, aggravated assault, loitering, theft and three counts of possession of a controlled substance.

On Sunday, police say they received an anonymous tip that Kemp was located in the 1400 block of Bowman Road in Lawrenceville. Upon arrival, officers found him inside a vehicle. He was arrested and taken to the Gwinnett County Jail.

About two weeks prior, authorities say Kemp shot his roommate, 35-year-old Justin Lopes, outside a residence in the 2000 block of Prospect Road. When officers arrived on the scene, they found Lopes lying on the couch suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Lopes was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center in critical but stable condition.
