“I’m elated that an arrest has been made, but I’m not ready to make comments about the case right now,” Tina Robbins said Tuesday morning.
The Cobb County Police Department arrested Sean DGen Hall, 38, of Mableton, in Cherokee County on Monday on charges of aggravated assault, aggravated battery and murder in the death of Zach Gamble of Acworth, according to Cobb County Police.
Hall is also accused violating his probation stemming from a DUI in 2009. He is being held without bail in the Cobb County Jail
Gamble, 34, was found unconscious with severe head injuries in the parking lot at Concord Chase Apartments in Smyrna in the early morning hours of March 25. He remained unconscious at WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta for two weeks before dying April 8.
Since that time, his mother has reached out to the community through Facebook and a petition website asking anyone with information to come forward so the family can figure out what happened to their loved one.
As of last week, both the Atlanta Crime Stoppers and Robbins were offering rewards totaling $30,000 for information about Gamble’s death.
Late Tuesday night, Cobb Police announced three more arrests in the case.
Tarell Winston Secrest, 36, of Marietta; Jason Scott Hill, 35, of Marietta; and Arthur Lynell Batchelor, 37, of Acworth, were arrested on charges of aggravated assault, aggravated battery and murder.
All three are being held at the Cobb County Jail without bail.
According to police, Gamble was at a friend’s birthday party at the apartment complex off Old Concord Road, and as the party ended, a group of people confronted him in the parking lot “over an undetermined issue.”
Sgt. Dana Pierce with Cobb Police declined to release any additional information regarding the case and would not say if more arrests are pending, who tipped police about the group of people or if Gamble knew Hall.
Mike Gerhard with the Cobb County Medical Examiners Officer said Gamble’s autopsy was completed within a day or two of his death, but said they are waiting on the results of a toxicology screen.
“If the doctor thinks toxicology had anything to do with his death, it could take another 60 to 90 days to get results,” he said.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Cobb Police at (770) 499-3945.
