Three men have been charged with felony murder in an indictment in alleged connection to a fatal April shooting.
Brandon Scott King, 27, Cheslen Dequan Bell, 20, both of Gainesville, and Kevin Michael Turner, 28, of Gillsville, were charged Wednesday with felony murder and aggravated assault from an alleged shooting April 11 in Gainesville.
A fourth person, Frederick Deshun Cheek, 17, of Gainesville, was also in the indictment and charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and violation of the Georgia Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act.
According to the indictment, Cheek is accused of summoning Bell, King and Turner “to come to his location for the purpose and intent of committing said crime.”
Bell, King and Turner are also charged with violation of the gang statute for allegedly being associated with the Crips. King was charged additionally under the gang statute for allegedly “occupying a position of leadership in said gang,” according to the indictment.
Attempts to reach Bell’s attorney Lee Parks and King’s attorney Brett Mizerak for comment were unsuccessful. Turner’s attorney Rose Priddy declined to comment.
No contact information was available for Cheek in the Hall County Comprehensive Justice Information System.
