On Friday, detectives were looking for Jamari “PeeWee” Marable and said he's since turned himself in.

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Editor's note: The video above is from the previous report.

The 17-year-old boy wanted by Sandy Springs Police Department in connection to a murder turned himself into Fulton County police on Tuesday according to the department. 

Detectives were looking for Jamari “PeeWee” Marable, a North Springs High school student on Friday. He's suspected of shooting and killing 21-year-old Jazhae Marshall after an argument, earlier in the week Sandy Springs police said. 

The incident happened on May 23 in the 8000 block of Roswell Road. According to officers, they responded to a call that a person was shot around 10:15 p.m. When they arrived,  police said they found a man shot dead from multiple gunshots. They called the situation a domestic dispute. 

Marable is considered armed and dangerous, the department said. He is wanted on warrants for the following charges:

  • Murder
  • Possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony
  • Cruelty to children

Investigators said the crime took place in front of a 12-year-old, which is why Marable is wanted for cruelty to children.

Police said they do not believe this was a random act of violence and urge anyone who knows where Marable is to contact Det. B. Davidson at bdavidson@sandysprinsgsga.gov or 770-551-3327.
