3 Teens Charged In Shaneku McCurty Gas Station Murder

(AJC) – Three DeKalb County teenagers have been charged with murder in the Friday morning shooting death of Shaneku 9083487_GMcCurty outside a gas station on Redan Road.

McCurty, 25, was outside the Chevron Food Mart at Redan Road and South Indian Creek Drive when she was confronted by several suspects. She resisted and was shot.

DeKalb County Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Public Safety Cedric Alexander said Saturday that two brothers — ages 15 and 16 — were arrested in the case, as well as another 16-year-old. The latter is believed to be the shooter.

All three suspects have been charged with felony murder, and the district attorney’s office will ultimately decide whether or not to charge them as adults, Alexander said. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is not naming the suspects because it was unclear if that decision had been made.

Alexander said the brothers turned themselves in to the homicide unit late Friday, and the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office fugitive unit, U.S. Marshals task force and Atlanta Police Department continued to pursue leads through the night.
