Suspect arrested, charged with murder in SW Atlanta gas station shooting

98 min read

“The APD homicide unit investigators continue to show their determination and investigative prowess in tracking down those responsible for murders in our city,” a police spokesperson said in a statement. “The fugitive unit continues to be a stellar team player in working with investigators, making these arrests, and taking these suspects into custody.”

It will mark the second homicide case in which Hayes faces charges within the past five months.

Court records show he was indicted in September on charges of murder and several violent felonies in connection with a November 2020 shooting.

According to an arrest warrant, Hayes shot 45-year-old Terrence Beavers in the chest and killed him early the morning of Nov. 17, 2020. Fulton County police found Beavers dead inside a Chevy Malibu crashed into a retaining wall on an embankment beneath the I-20 overpass along Fulton Industrial Boulevard, the warrant states.

A court order indicates Superior Court Judge Shukura Ingram put Hayes’ case on a judicial hold Nov. 3, which made him unavailable for prosecution. Ingram lifted the hold Tuesday, citing Hayes’ latest arrest, court records show.
