Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Jake Smith said Francis was stabbed multiple times and was able to tell officers that O'Reilly had attacked him before he was pronounced dead at Gwinnett Medical Center.

Investigators eventually found O'Reilly, 24, driving the victim's Toyota Camry in Pensacola, Fla. He was arrested Monday and is being held in the Escambia County Jail awaiting extradition to Gwinnett County.
