According to Gwinnett County officials, shortly after 6:20 a.m. on Dec. 13, officers in Lawrenceville responding to a report of person shot found Senior Correctional Officer Scott Riner, 59, suffering a gunshot wound.
A preliminary investigation determined Riner was shot in a parking lot outside the correctional facility where he worked for over a decade, officials said.
Officials said investigators had been working “around the clock” on the case before Abdulkadir’s arrest.
“The Gwinnett Police department would like to extend condolences to his family, friends, and coworkers,” officials noted.
The investigation continues and authorities have not released a possible motive for the deadly shooting.
