Authorities say online dating may have played a role in the Sept. 1 shooting death of Jordan Collins, 23, and injuries to his brother at a home on Tunbridge Wells Crescent in Lithonia.
The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Fugitive Unit said four suspects were arrested in the murder: Clarissa McGhee, 21, of McDonough; Nashae Poole, 21, of Hampton; Antonio Avery, 25, of Atlanta; and Demarco Butler, 27, of Jonesboro. Each is charged with murder and aggravated assault for their alleged involvement in the shooting death of Collins and the shooting injury of his brother, Chad Collins. All are being held in the DeKalb County Jail.
According to warrants, Jordan Collins met Poole and McGhee on the dating site plentyoffish.com on Sept. 1. The suspects allegedly came to the murder victim’s house under the pretense of a date.
Jordan was lured outside where Avery and Butler waited, resulting in the shooting death of Jordan. Chad was shot and wounded when he went to check on Jordan. All four suspects fled the location after the shooting. Detectives believe robbery was the intended motive.
