Jayvon Wilkins

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Norcross police are looking for man who is suspected of fatally shooting another man after an argument at an extended stay hotel on Jimmy Carter Boulevard on Sunday.

Norcross Sgt. Eric Butynski said police received a 911 call about shots fired shortly after 11 a.m. Officers arrived at the HomeTowne Studios Atlanta NE — Norcross South, which is located at 6295 Jimmy Carter Blvd., and found one man dead.

On Monday, the GBI identified the man as Darian Glover, 30. The agency said he was found in a hallway.

“GBI agents and Norcross detectives discovered that earlier that morning there was a verbal dispute between Glover and Jayvon Wilkins, age 30,” GBI officials said in a statement. “During the argument, witnesses heard multiple gunshots and observed Wilkins fleeing the area.”

Initially, Butynski said there were two suspects, including a male shooter and a female. Police interviewed the woman Sunday and Butynski said at the time that investigators had identified the male suspect, although Wilkins name was not released until Monday morning.

“Wilkins’ current whereabouts are unknown,” the GBI said. “Both males were residing in separate rooms at the Hometown Suites. Warrants were obtained for the arrest of Wilkins. Wilkins is wanted for Malice Murder and Aggravated Assault for the death of Glover.”

The name of the female suspect has not yet been released by law enforcement. Wilkins is the only person that the GBI said charges have been filed against.

Butynski deferred all other questions to the GBI.

Anyone who knows where Wilkins is located, or who has any other information about the case, is asked to call the GBI Atlanta Field Office at 770-388-5019.
