Lilburn Police said they have made another arrested in the murder of a young man outside a bowling alley over the summer.

Estefania Castro, 17, has been charged with felony murder in connection to the death of Rahmier Gardner outside the Brunswick Zone bowling facility off Lawrenceville Highway on July 29.

Police said the 20-year-old was playing a game with friends around 11:30 p.m. that night when he left his lane and friends noticed him missing during his turn to bowl. Police believe he received a phone call and stepped outside to take it.

Police said he was found with a gunshot wound, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Khalid Bays and Geovanni Perez, both 18, were charged in late September in connection to Gardner’s death.

Bay had already turned himself in to Atlanta Police for the shooting death of a 49-year-old grandmother. Jenkins died on Aug. 12 when a bullet struck her in the head as she drove home from a shift at the City of Refuge where she worked helping homeless mothers. A witness saw her car run off the road near the intersection of Hopkins Street and Westview Drive. Officers found Jenkins’ body in the minivan when they arrived.

Police said they do not yet have a motive for the murder. Gardner grew up in the Snellville area and was a 2016 graduate of Brookwood High School, having played on the baseball team and was a popular student at the school. Gardner was set to resume studies at Kennesaw State, study business, and invest in the stock market, loved ones told FOX 5 News.
