Major break in Va-Hi shooting: SUV found, one suspect in custody

Posted By on Mon, Nov 29, 2010 at 6:15 PM

Following a press conference called by Chief George Turner, it's being reported that the APD believes it's found the dark colored SUV that was used in three recent crimes, including the shooting death of 39-year-old Charles Boyer in Virginia-Highland. One suspect in the crime spree is already in custody.

Today, GBI investigators discovered Boyer's cell phone and ID inside a 2005 Toyota Highlander that was found abandoned at the Lakewood MARTA station.

On Nov. 22, Boyer was approached by three men, then shot and killed during an attempted robbery outside a Virginia Avenue apartment complex (not far from the Midtown Promenade or Grady High). A witness reported seeing a dark colored SUV leaving the scene. The following night, a dark colored SUV was reported to have been seen leaving the scene or in the area of two more crimes, an attempted shooting of a man near Grant Park and a home invasion on Home Avenue.

The vehicle was initially stolen on Nov. 19 on Greenview Avenue. Two of the suspects were captured on surveillance camera at a nearby business. As of today, one of them was already in custody on unrelated charges.
