ATLANTA - U.S. marshals and Atlanta police have arrested a man suspected in a double slaying last week.
Shonneshia Tucker and Derrick Pitts were gunned down on Holly Street in northwest Atlanta on Wednesday. Witnesses said Tucker and O’Neal were arguing, and Pitts tried to break it up when shots rang out.
"He was just trying to stop the fight, and he got in between, and a good person just went down when the deal went wrong," Pitts’ father, Derrick Hurst, told Channel 2’s Tony Thomas.
A witness said there were 10 back-to-back shots.
As police collected evidence at the scene, fights broke out between relatives of some of those involved. Officers jumped in to restrain several people.
