Arrest made in shooting death

LAWRENCEVILLE - Police have made an arrest in connection with the Aug. 2 shooting death of a Decatur man in the parking lot of a Bahama Breeze restaurant in Duluth.

Miguel A. Dominguez-Reyes, 22, of Lawrenceville, was charged Wednesday with murder, possessing a weapon during the commission of a crime and trafficking cocaine.

Police said Dominguez-Reyes was picked up in New Orleans about two weeks ago and was just extradited Wednesday. According to the arrest warrant, Dominguez-Reyes was "setting up the sale of cocaine" when the shooting occurred.

"He was at the scene during the time of the incident," said Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. David Schiralli. "He is not the shooter, but is still being charged with murder because of his actions in the involvement with the victim."

The victim was 40-year-old Erick Anthony Livsey. Police said Livsey was with another man in a vehicle when someone opened fire on them just before

8 p.m. Livsey died at the scene. The other victim was taken to an area hospital in critical condition. The hospital was not identified for the man's protection. Schiralli said he would have to check with a detective assigned to the case for updates.

It is unclear whether police have a suspected trigger man. Schiralli said the case is still under investigation.

According to jail records, Dominguez-Reyes is being held without bond in the Gwinnett County Detention Center.
