Update: Suspect in Roswell Shooting Pleads Not Guilty
This past August, in North Fulton County, Georgia, two teenagers were shot to death behind a Publix shopping center. The suspect, 20-year-old Jeffrey Hazelwood acted very strangely when he first appeared in court just a few days later. Last Thursday, November 10, 2016, Hazelwood appeared for the second time in court, where he reportedly acted more normally and plead not guilty to the charges.
Hazelwood is suspected to have killed Natalie Henderson and Carter Davis, both 17, at around 6 a.m. on August 3. According to police, both Henderson and Carter were killed by a gunshot wound to the head. The story became widespread due to the fact that the victims were popular, well-known students at Roswell High School.
About a week later, a grand jury charged Hazelwood with two counts of murder, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges, two kidnapping charges, aggravated sexual battery, financial transaction, two counts of theft by taking, identify fraud, and possession of firearm during commission of a felony.
