DeKalb County police have released the name and picture of a man suspected in the shooting deaths of two cousins over the weekend.

Lamaris Grier, 25, is accused of shooting 23-year-old Jerry Grier and 25-year-old Jaman Mills as they were playing video games at their Bobolink Drive home late Friday night.

Family members said a relative returned to the house to find the horrifying scene.

"It wasn't just one family that he destroyed, it's two," Mills' father, Tony Stone, said. Stone said his son was a good boy, a strong Christian, who he believes, was simply caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"I loved that boy and I want whoever did this (to) turn yourself in," Stone said.

Authorities said Grier is not related to the victims. He is believed to be driving a 2005 maroon Mercury Sable with Georgia tag number PNX6356.
