CRISP COUNTY, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta) - Deputies have arrested an 18-year-old murder suspect who was declared "armed and dangerous" when he went on the run after being accused of killing a father of four.
Officers said the incident began April 3, when Keyondre Preston fired a shot at Stanley Hillman's dog. Hillman's son, 40-year-old Shelvis Hillman, confronted Preston about the shooting.
That same day, Hillman and two other suspects forced their way into Shelvis Hillman's home and tried to rob him and the other residents. During that robbery, police say Preston shot Hillman in the abdomen.
Investigators had been looking for Preston for more than a week. Early Sunday morning, the Crisp County Sheriff's Office said it received a tip that Preston was at the Ashburn Inn on the 1600 block of East 16th Avenue.
Multiple agencies convened on the hotel. Preston was arrested without incident. A 16-year-old also was taken into custody but was released after being interviewed.
Deputies say they also found drugs and a weapon in the hotel room.
