Victim ID'd in shooting

DULUTH - Gwinnett police have identified the victim of a late-night shooting at a Duluth gas station this past weekend as 23-year-old Terrence Davis of Lithonia.

Davis was killed when another Lithonia man, Lagarian LaKeith Hannah, 24, allegedly opened fire on a crowd of people after 2 a.m. Sunday, according to an arrest warrant. The shooting happened in the parking lot of a BP station at 2001 Pleasant Hill Road.

Davis died at the scene. Police wouldn't say how many times he was shot or where he was struck. He was reportedly unarmed.

Police fingered Hannah as the alleged shooter after speaking with several witnesses on scene and locating a handgun in his car, said Gwinnett police spokeswoman Cpl. Illana Spellman.

Davis was arrested Sunday and charged with felony murder. He remains at the Gwinnett County Jail without bond. His motive for opening fire is under investigation, Spellman said.

A probable cause hearing for Hannah is scheduled Jan. 2 in Gwinnett Magistrate Court.

Hannah, apparently no stranger to Gwinnett, was twice arrested in the county last year on DUI charges, jail records show.

The shooting marks the second fatal altercation in the parking lot of a business near Pleasant Hill Road this month.

A drug deal gone sour prompted a shootout Dec. 12 at a Club Drive convenience store that left a California man dead, police said.

The alleged shooter in that case, Dion Harris Jr., 20, remains in jail without bond on felony murder charges.
