Tobias Marquez Thomas, 20, of Morgan Street, Aiken, was arrested at a home in Decatur and held pending charges for the murder of Kaliel Bey.
“Investigators completed several interviews, followed up on leads and tips, and processed physical evidence which led investigators to issue warrants” for murder and weapon possession on Thomas, a press release said.
Acting on a CrimeStoppers tip, Thomas was arrested by DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office at a relative’s home. Thomas will have an extradition hearing in Georgia and be extradited back to Aiken at a later date.
Aiken Department of Public Safety is being assisted by the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, SLED, ATF RAGE TASK FORCE, Second Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office, and the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office. This is an ongoing investigation and more arrests are possible.
Aiken police say a young man has died after being shot May 26 in the Paces Run apartment complex.
The victim had at least one gunshot wound, a press release says.
The victim was rushed to the Augusta University Medical Center, where he died sometime later.
