A local barber and father of two was shot and killed earlier this month and police now say they have arrested a suspect in connection to the killing.
Talmage Leroy Roberson is accused of killing Roennell Cherry on Feb. 17, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The shooting happened during an armed robbery at an Austell, Georgia home.
Roberson was arrested on Feb. 24 and charged with murder and aggravated assault, according to the Journal-Constitution. Roberson is being held without bond.
Investigators have not said if the two men knew each other before the shooting.
The Journal-Constitution reported that Roberson was released from prison in July after serving four years for an aggravated assault and home invasion.
Family and friends created a GoFundMe page for Cherry after his death. Money is being raised to help with funeral costs.
“Meechie enjoy being a Barber but most of all he loved being a father. We are all heart broken and lost for word that he will no longer be with us physically,” the page read.
