Man arrested in murder of two Gwinnett County brothers

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — More than two months after a deadly shooting, Gwinnett County police have made an arrest in the murders of two brothers.

Darius “Deuce” Myles, 28, and Christopher “CJ” Smith, 23, were shot and killed March 28 inside their home off Oxford Hall Drive in Lawrenceville.

On Wednesday, police arrested Walter Devron Hill, 28 of Lawrenceville. He is charged with two counts of felony murder and two counts of aggravated assault.


Their sister, Deja Myles, told Channel 2 Action News in March that her brothers were shot in their sleep as the house was locked and everything was in place.

“I’m hurting because my younger brothers are dead,” Myles said. “I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to think. My mother went from six kids to four kids in a matter of seconds.”

Myles said her mother went to check on them and found her brothers dead after no one could reach them.

“There was no broken glass,” Myles said. “The doors were locked and everything.”
