Couple Surrenders Hours After Fleeing Shooting Scene in Lexus

A couple accused of shooting a man early Sunday morning in Clayton and then fleeing in a Lexus turned themselves into police hours later. But it’s still unclear what prompted the shooting and police have not released any details on the victim.

Officers canceled the BOLO on the two deemed “armed and dangerous,” after Justin McCoy, 20, and Keyara Wallace, 18, turned themselves in late Sunday night at the Clayton County jail, according to the Clayton County police.

They were charged with aggravated assaults, police spokesman Officer Eddie Soto said in a news release.

The shooting happened around 1:30 a.m. at 5857 San Gabriel Lane in Morrow, Officer Soto said.

McCoy and Wallace were seen fleeing the scene in a black Lexus. The car had an Alabama license plate and the initials “KLW” in pink lettering across the back window, Soto said.

He did not release any details on the circumstances surrounding the shooting or the victim’s condition. It’s also unclear who shot the man and how many times he was struck.
