COBB COUNTY, Ga. - A 36-year-old man has been arrested for murder after police say they found him with the victim in a Vinings’ apartment on Friday.
On Monday, a tarp covered the front porch of the townhome where police said it was an argument that led to the gunfire.
Cobb County Police say they received a call just after 6:30 p.m. from the home on Allegretto Circle.
"Our officers were dispatched on Friday evening around 6:42 pm to a shooting. Turns it out was an actual shooting victim who had been shot multiple times," Sgt. Wayne Delk of the Cobb County Police Department told FOX 5.
Delk said they found 31-year-old Timothy Bennett had been shot several times.
Deandra Benson-Perryman, 39, was charged with murder and aggravated assault. Police said he was still at the scene when they arrived.
According to Cobb County tax records, Benson-Perryman is listed as the owner of the home that is now for sale.
Neighbors told FOX 5 he was in the process of moving out when the shooting happened.
"Apparently the two men had gotten into some sort of altercation or argument that escalated and our suspect ended up shooting the victim several times," Sgt. Delk said.
Bennett was rushed to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital where he later died.
Benson-Perryman was booked into the Cobb County Jail. He was being held there Monday without bond.
