2 teens arrested, charged with murder in Brookhaven shooting

Police responded to the Highland Knoll Apartments around 7 p.m. and found Paco-Camacho suffering from a gunshot wound, Brookhaven police spokesman Lt. David Snively said. Responding officers attempted to give him first aid, but he was declared dead at the scene by emergency medical personnel.According to Snively, the murder investigation was assisted by the presence of license plate reader cameras.“To date, the cameras have directly contributed to dozens of arrests, including in two homicide cases,” Snively said.Several witnesses were able to provide descriptions of the suspects and their cars during the initial investigation.Both suspects were taken into custody without incident, officials said. They have each been booked into the DeKalb County Jail, where they remain without bond.”,”streams”:[{“provider”:”mediaconvert”,”width”:960,”stream_type”:”ts”,”bitrate”:1500,”filesize”:18022432,”url”:”https://d189dz6wvushk1.cloudfront.net/wp-ajc/20201109/5fa8997ac9e77c000163acd8/t_04e25b83784b486fa200328d3d581a71_name_4cacb7df5cea411985f2dd2459246cae/master.m3u8″,”height”:540}],”canonical_url”:”/news/alex-trebek-dead-at-80/FX7LEYS62CMZBRDREEBLB46XGY/”,”promo_items”:{“basic”:{“credits”:{},”caption”:”Alex Trebek Dead at 80″,”type”:”image”,”version”:”0.5.8″,”url”:”https://d1fegwn2wjh0cs.cloudfront.net/11-09-2020/t_4f2ea1b691304a48a90b27ac03f32c18_name_c0ca6e35d246417095f8e0eee74d4cad.jpg”}},”version”:”0.8.0″,”distributor”:{“mode”:”reference”,”reference_id”:”c64b6e89-2a90-48f5-9749-8efd44b05d77″},”canonical_website”:”ajc”,”revision”:{“published”:true},”video_type”:”clip”,”planning”:{“scheduling”:{}},”display_date”:”2020-11-09T02:09:42Z”,”headlines”:{“meta_title”:”Alex Trebek dead at 80″,”basic”:”Alex Trebek dead at 80″},”websites”:{“ajc”:{“website_url”:”/news/alex-trebek-dead-at-80/FX7LEYS62CMZBRDREEBLB46XGY/”,”website_section”:{“path”:”/news”,”_website”:”ajc”,”name”:”News”,”_id”:”/news”,”type”:”section”,”version”:”0.6.0″,”primary”:true}}},”_id”:”FX7LEYS62CMZBRDREEBLB46XGY”,”created_date”:”2020-11-09T02:10:58Z”,”publish_date”:”2020-11-09T02:12:57Z”},{“_id”:”2CKZMBV36VESDIBEDLFCQE7W6Y”,”additional_properties”:{“inline_comments”:[],”comments”:[],”_id”:1617737420727},”type”:”text”,”content”:”“Jeopardy!” will match the cumulative winnings of all the contestants competing during Rodgers’ weeks as host for a donation to the North Valley Community Foundation in Chico, California, the NFL star’s hometown.
