Atlanta police have arrested a fourth suspect in the shooting death of Jerrick Jackson, the brother of Bishop Wiley Jackson, pastor of Gospel Tabernacle Cathedral.
According to the AJC, Demetrius Morgan, 17, was arrested on Tuesday evening by the Atlanta police department’s Fugitive Unit. He was taken to the Fulton County Jail. That same day, Felton D. Lovejoy, 18, was taken into custody on charges of murder and armed robbery. He is also in the Fulton County Jail.
Two other men have already been charged in the case. Geno Lewis, 19, turned himself in to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office on Friday, while Alejandro “Big Poppa” Pitts, 18, was arrested Thursday by Atlanta police and U.S. Marshals. Both suspects remain in the Fulton County Jail charged with murder and armed robbery.
Bishop Jackson addressed the first two arrests in a sermon at his church on Sunday.
“It’s time that we all got to step up and do something,” he said. “What could make young men have so much anger that they want to do harm to someone?”
As we previously reported, Jerrick Jackson, 47, was shot and killed May 7. He and his fiancée were ambushed by armed men trying to force their way into their Atlanta home
