Clarkston, GA — DeKalb Police are trying to solve a murder case from 2020 and are asking for the public’s help.

Demarco Williams, 18, was fatally shot on August 26, 2020 at 751 N. Indian Creek Drive in unincorporated Clarkston, according to DeKalb County Police.

According to police, Demarco and two others were outside when two suspects approached them and immediately began shooting.

“Demarco and another male were shot, but Demarco died from his injuries,” a spokesperson for the DeKalb County Police Department said. “Investigators have exhausted all leads and have not been able to identify any suspects in the double shooting. There is a person of interest, who has not been positively identified. The person of interest is someone who investigators believe approached Demarco and his mother just hours before the shooting.”
