The Hall County Sheriff’s Department SWAT team raided an Atlanta Highway residence Monday night and arrested 45-year-old Michael Douglas Fox in connection with a Gwinnett County murder, officials said.

Details regarding the murder were unavailable late Monday night, Hall County Sheriff’s Maj. Jeff Strickland said. However, he did say that the murder occurred recently in Gwinnett County.

"The Gwinnett County Police Department secured an arrest warrant for murder for Michael Douglas Fox (this afternoon)," Strickland said Monday. "They had information that he was at 5967 Atlanta Highway."

Strickland said the SWAT team was involved because the warrant was for murder, and Fox had a history of violence.

Fox was taken into custody without incident about 9:30 p.m., and handed over to Gwinnett County Police, Strickland said.
