Unlicensed Atlanta security guard charged with murder www.privateofficer.com
Atlanta GA Aug 20 2012 A security guard with a criminal record has been charged with murder in the death of a 26-year-old man whose body was found in an auto parts yard in Fulton County.
Fulton County police arrested Mr. Marvin Copeland, 46, of College Park, late Saturday in the deadly shooting of Mr. Daniel Exum, spokesman Sgt. Scott McBride said.
They charged him with murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, Sgt. McBride said.
Though it was unclear what the convicted felon was doing with a weapon, it was also unclear what prompted the deadly shooting. And police have yet to determine what the victim was doing at the location, which is owned by the suspect’s brother.
“Mr. Copeland is the brother of the business owner and was working security on the property overnight,” Sgt. McBride said.
Around 8:30 a.m. a passerby spotted the man’s body just inside All Start Automotive at 4455 Roosevelt Hwy. and called police, Sgt. McBride said.
When officers arrived they found Mr. Exum dead at the scene, Sgt. McBride said.
Neighbors told police they heard shooting in the area earlier that morning, but no one called police.
