Sandy Springs Police have arrested 23-year old Victor Scott, of the 1100 block of Morgan Falls Road, in connection with the April 14 shooting that killed Patrick Placide. Detectives contacted Scott and arrangements were made for him to surrender to them on Monday, police announced. He is in the Fulton County Jail charged with felony murder.
Last week, Placide and 28-year old Willy Jeanlouis were shot in the complex parking lot about 11:30 p.m. that Saturday night. Police described it as a drug deal gone bad.
Placide was dead at the scene with a gunshot wound to the head. Jeanlouis, who was shot once in the head but escaped, was treated and later released from North Fulton Hospital. He was then taken to SSPD Criminal Investigation Unit where he spoke to detectives.
He was arrested in connection with the incident, last week, along with James Taft and Gene Stephens. Scott had since been sought on murder charges.
