Authorities nab murder suspect near Nashville

LAWRENCEVILLE -- A fugitive squad near Nashville apprehended the primary suspect in a Lawrenceville gas station killing this week, while his alleged counterpart remains on the run, Gwinnett authorities said Friday.

A Metro Atlanta Fugitive Task Force deputy tracked Fuad Mohamud, 21, of Lawrenceville, to Metro-Davidson County near Nashville on Wednesday. Mohamud faces murder charges and is being extradited to Gwinnett, said Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter.

Exactly how the suspect was found in Tennessee wasn't clear Friday, Ritter said.

Authorities are still searching for a second suspect -- Airis Jamar Evans-Ingram, 20, also of Lawrenceville -- in the July 21 shooting outside a Chevron station at the intersection of Old Norcross and Herrington roads.

At least one of the men is suspected of shooting Loganville resident Deandre Perkins, 20, in the chest as he sat in a vehicle with a friend that day. Perkins died at Gwinnett Medical Center the following day.

The motive for the shooting is still under investigation.

Police urge anyone with information regarding Evans-Ingram's whereabouts to call the Gwinnett County Police Department at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
