A Georgia 17-year-old was booked on felony murder charges in a shooting death that took place in a Dunkin' Donuts parking lot on Friday, according to DeKalb County Sheriff's Office documents.
Police identified 41-year-old Brian Dykes as the victim. Police reportedly found Dykes after being called to the scene at 8:53 Friday morning. Dykes died from an apparent gunshot wound, WXIA reported.
The 17-year-old suspect allegedly grabbed Dykes' gun while Dykes was making a purchase at the donut shop, Lt. Shane Smith told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, adding that the suspect "snatched a firearm from the victim's back waistband."
Dykes then chased the suspect, catching up with him outside the store. Next, a brief struggle ensued. The suspect then shot Dykes and then fled the scene, the outlet also reported.
After pulling surveillance video and canvasing the area, police determined the suspect was staying at a nearby hotel, the AJC and WSB reported.
