The Atlanta Police Department has arrested two suspects in a Buckhead murder case but is still searching for a third one.

In August Thomas Stone was found dead at his home in Buckhead’s Garden Hills neighborhood, the apparent victim of a shooting.

In a statement, the police stated, “On (Aug. 15) at around 10:30 a.m., officers were dispatched to a person down call at 351 Alexander Drive in northeast Atlanta. Upon arrival, officers located a male, deceased inside the home, from an apparent gunshot wound. The preliminary investigation indicates the victim may have been familiar with someone who was present at the time of the shooting. At this time, the investigation continues.”

Sept. 22, the police arrested two suspects: Kaya Ellis, who was charged with murder, theft by taking and computer theft; and Aniqua Harris, who was charged with conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit theft by taking and conspiracy to commit computer theft.

“Our investigators are working to locate a third suspect, and we will release the name once the suspect is taken into custody,” said Officer Stephanie R. Brown, an Atlanta Police spokeswoman.

Anyone with information on the suspect still at large is asked to contact CrimeStoppers by calling or texting 404-577-8477 or visiting Tips can be left anonymously.

In related news, the victim in the case regarding a deadly shooting Oct. 5 at Level V, an event space located at 2101 Tula St. in Buckhead, has been identified as Brian Onyekewe, of Decatur. He was shot and killed at a party there.

“Preliminary information shows that the shooting was possibly the result of an altercation that started inside the club,” the police stated in a statement.
