Police search for suspect in slaying

LAWRENCEVILLE - Police believe the triggerman in a Dec. 11 convenience store shooting is someone who goes by the street name "Mikey D."

Informants have told police the black man might live anywhere from Norcross to Winder, but searches have come up empty thus far, Gwinnett police Detective J. Rowell said Friday.

Rowell testified in a probable cause hearing for Raymone Cook, who's charged with murder for accompanying the mystery shooter in Cook's white GMC Yukon when gunfire broke out at Jenny's Food Mart, a stand-alone store on Club Drive.

The shooting left Leo Fletcher III, 21, dead and Dion Harris Jr., 20, injured. Both men are from Sacramento, Calif.

Police have said bullets flew that night when a marijuana deal went sour. Rowell testified that more than $3,000 in cash and a small amount of marijuana was in the Chevrolet Malibu where Fletcher's body was found.

Cook was serving a 60-day sentence at the Gwinnett County Correctional Complex for violating probation when an anonymous tipster told police his vehicle was at the murder scene. He was charged with murder late last month.

Gwinnett Magistrate Court Judge Gene Cantrell bound murder charges against Cook to Superior Court. He remains jailed without bond.
