Suwanee man killed in shooting in downtown Buford

An Auburn man is accused of shooting a man he worked with in the Buford area Tuesday, Nov. 20.

Gwinnett County Police were called to investigate the fatal shooting of Allen Craig Willard Jr., 25, of Suwanee, in downtown Buford.

Officers responded around 12:10 p.m. Tuesday to West Main and South Lee streets regarding an active shooter report and found Willard’s body in the roadway.

“It was also determined that it was not an active shooter but a shooting due to a dispute between known parties. A description of the suspect was obtained and given to responding units,” police Cpl. Wilbert Rundles wrote in a news release.

The 34-year-old suspect, Jerome Daniel Colvin, ran from the area and was apprehended shortly thereafter.

“Detectives are working to determine what led to the dispute and subsequent shooting. No other parties were injured during the altercation,” Rundles said.

Colvin was charged with felony murder, malice murder and aggravated assault.

Police have not released any other details about the connection between the two men other than they “worked together in the Buford area.”
