Murder suspects identified in deadly Alpharetta apartment shooting

Police are searching for a gunman after a deadly overnight shooting at an Alpharetta apartment complex.

Officials say multiple shots were fired Thursday night around 10:30 at the Manchester at Mansell Apartment Complex on the 300 block of Carriage Trace.

The shots left one man dead in the parking lot of the apartment complex.

"Around 10:26 p.m. Alpharetta police received a phone call of shots fired," Alpharetta Police Department Capt. Jakai Braithwaite said. "There were multiple phone calls coming in around that time."

Investigators later identified the victim as Victor J. Lazo.

Police say Lazo is in his late 20s and lived at the complex.

Investigators with the Alpharetta Police Department and Roswell Police Department worked overnight to canvass the crime scene, talk to witnesses, and gather evidence.

"This is a homicide. These types of incidents are fluid," Braithwaite said. "Right now is the time when you want to know a lot of information, but things are changing. It's fluid. It's ongoing."

Lazo's sister told police that she heard Lazo arguing with someone in the parking lot just before the shooting. Two men were seen running away from the apartment complex shortly after gunshots rang out.

Authorities later confirmed the two men were also residents at the apartment complex and were suspects in the deadly shooting. 

Investigators have identified the suspects as Zion Hayward and Jaycob Allen Jones.
