The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit arrested two murder suspects today.

DeKalb sheriff’s investigators, with the U.S. Marshals Office, arrested 41 year-old Stone Mountain, Georgia resident Gerald Jerome Clark in Decatur on a charge of murder in the death of an unidentified woman on Sept. 26, 2020 at a Fieldgreen Drive residence in Stone Mountain. The arrest warrant alleges that Clark shot the victim several times and locked her in the trunk of a vehicle which he set on fire.

In a separate operation, DeKalb sheriff’s investigators worked with the Rockdale Sheriff’s Office to arrest 23-year-old Courtney Evette Terrell of Lithonia on a charge of murder. The arrest warrant alleges that Terrell caused the death of Shamsiddin Echols on Oct. 24, 2020 at a gas station on Wesley Chapel Road in Decatur. The arrest took place at a Conyers, Georgia residence.

Both arrests were made without incident and both suspects were transported to the DeKalb County Jail.
