CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — The suspects accused of shooting a man at a gas station after trying to rob him have been caught, according to the Clayton County Sheriff's Office.

It was around 3:15 p.m. on Nov. 6 when officers from the Clayton County Police Department and sheriff's deputies responded to the intersection of Rex Road and Mt. Zion Boulevard after getting reports of a shooting. 

When they got there, they found a man laying on the ground in the parking lot of a Chevron gas station, unresponsive. 

EMS arrived to the scene and took the man to a local hospital, but he later died. Police are not releasing his name at this time.

According to witnesses on the scene, the man had gotten into an argument with a suspect before he was shot. That suspect, later identified as 18-year-old Daijon Tyes, was then seen running away on foot. 

They were able to catch up with him, using the description of witnesses, where he was taken into custody and brought to police headquarters for questioning. The sheriff's office said he still had a handgun on him when he was arrested.

Deputies said a second suspect, Amourion Bruce, who drove off from the scene was later involved in a high-speed chase with Union City Police, but he was also captured.

They were both booked into the Clayton County Jail on charges of murder. 

Tyse was later linked to the shooting of a security guard at a Union City movie set.
