The Atlanta Police Department announced it has arrested a suspect wanted in the carjacking and shooting death of a man in a Goodwill store parking lot in Buckhead.
According to a news release, Oct. 20 at about 3:30 a.m., officers responded to a 911 call about shots fired in the area of 1180 Collier Road. When they arrived, officers found Lawrence Denney, 73, dead in the store’s parking lot from an apparent gunshot wound to the chest.
