DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — A woman wanted for murder in DeKalb was captured after a police chase, according to the Clayton County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities arrested Brandisha Williams Tuesday and they are still looking for a second person in connection with the crime.

Deputies said Williams is accused of setting up a man for a robbery where he was shot and killed in the DeKalb. The family identified the victim of that crime as 25-year-old Antonio Neville Jr., a father of four.

On June 3, DeKalb Police told 11Alive they responded to the Gulf American Inn Motel on Flat Shoals Road shortly before 1:30 a.m. Neville was shot at least 10 times and taken to a local hospital, where he later died, officers said. 

“She was [whose] name he said to the paramedics and witnesses before passing out," a family member told 11Alive Thursday.

"A murder suspect found out the hard way that that when you flee from police, it’s not wise to come through Clayton County," the sheriff's office said in a news release.

Clayton County authorities said other agencies chased a stolen vehicle into Clayton County. Once in the area of Tara Boulevard and Battle Creek, deputies said the suspect got out of the car and took off.

Deputies said a perimeter was set up as authorities put a tracking K-9 on the ground. A helicopter searched by air and they eventually caught her.

Williams was an acquaintance of Neville, according to his family. 

"We will receive justice, for our family needs to be at peace," the family said.

Williams will be sent to DeKalb County to face the murder charge. 

DeKalb Police said they are still looking for a second suspect. Anyone who has information about this case should contact police.
