A 20-year-old man was arrested Friday in the deadly shooting of a teen in Athens last month. But the motive for the murder was still not released Saturday.
Telvin Fleming, of Athens, was charged with felony murder and aggravated assault in the May 30 shooting of 18-year-old Jordorian Randolph, of Chalfont Lane according to the Athens-Clarke County police. They have not said how they were able to link Fleming to the crime.
Randolph’s body was found outside a home on Westchester Circle about 1 a.m. when officers responded to the scene after getting a report of shots being fired, police have said. The teen was lying near a home with his body partially obscured from view by hedges, police spokeswoman Hilda Sorrow said.
Someone had shot the teen at least once and left him to die outside the home, Sorrow said. Officers rendered aid until EMS arrived, but the victim died at the scene, she said. Police had originally identified the teen as Jordanius Randolph.
His body was transported to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab for an autopsy, Sorrow said. Athens-Clarke County Police, the Clarke County Coroner's Office, and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation worked together to investigate the murder, police said.
