Roswell police searching for man accused of shooting, killing girlfriend

If you see him, call 911.

ROSWELL, Ga. — Roswell police are looking for a man they said shot and killed his girlfriend.

Fabien Malik Perry, 27, is wanted on a murder charge. According to a warrant, Perry "knowingly and intentionally did shoot his girlfriend." 

Officers with the Roswell Police Department sought the warrant Wednesday after they got a call just after midnight about a woman hurt at a home along Old Ferry Way. Records show a person called 911 screaming for help from the home and a woman was heard distressed on the line as well. They reported a gunshot victim was heavily bleeding with much of it coming from her face, Perry's warrant states.

Police said when they arrived they found 23-year-old Johana Samantha "Samy" Cabrales-Hernandez dead from a gunshot wound. Her family was at the scene.

Perry's warrant adds that he lived with Cabrales-Hernandez and shares two children ages 2 and 7 months, with the mother.

Her family was concerned for her welfare after the children were abruptly dropped off at a family member's home "by a yet unidentified person," later identified by the family as Perry, according to police. According to police records, Cabrales-Hernandez's sister heard a knock around 12:05 a.m. and opened the door to see her niece and nephew. The men in the house searched the outside of the home to see who dropped off the children, but only noted a red vehicle leaving the area, records show. Their doorbell camera recorded the drop-off and family told police it was Perry who left the children there.

The family went to Cabrales-Hernandez's home, where they found her shot to death. 

Police said evidence pointed to Perry as the suspect. In interviews with Cabrales-Hernandez's family, members informed officers of her history of physical abuse that dates back to 2019, records show. The family notes that Perry was short-tempered and once, according to a warrant, choked Cabrales-Hernandez unconscious. Ultimately, Cabrales-Hernandez stayed to work on the relationship for the sake of the children, family members said. 

With this evidence, police are now searching for Perry. He stands at 5-feet-8-inches tall and weighs around 165 pounds. Police believe he's driving a red four-door Honda Civic.

Authorities added there's a strong possibility that Perry may have fled the state. They believe he could be in Frederick, Maryland, Wilmington, Delaware, Charlotte, North Carolina or Columbia, South Carolina. 

Police said they are working closely with state and federal law enforcement to find Perry. Anyone who sees him is urged to call 911.
