The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office says the murder warrant that led to the arrest Tuesday of 22-year-old Jaleel Nathanael Dix of Lithonia was subsequently dismissed and authorities have since arrested 23 year-old Javian Bernard Nesby of Decatur for the April 12, 2017 shooting death of Jordon Morris.

Based on information received at the time of the incident, the DeKalb County Police Department issued a warrant on April 20, 2017 for the arrest of Dix.  Following the arrest by the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Fugitive Squad on April 25, DeKalb Police homicide detectives conducted interviews, which led to another individual, Javian Bernard Nesby, believed to be responsible for shooting Morris in the face with what was described as an AK47-style assault rifle.

A warrant was issued for Nesby, who was taken into custody at the DeKalb County Jail without incident after further investigation.  He is being held on one count of felony murder. Dix remains in custody on unrelated charges.
