3 men arrested in Milton shooting death

Posted: Updated:
MILTON, Ga. -

Police in Milton say they have arrested three people in connection with the shooting death of a man in his driveway.

Investigators say 20-year-old Matthew Goins, 23-year-old Michael Grant, and 20-year-old Richard Davidson were arrested after obtaining warrants on March 26. They say leads in the case came from the CrimeStoppers tip line, and officers were able to locate the suspects based on a description of the car used in the crime.

Police say 19-year-old Christopher Walker was shot once in the head at his home on Silhouette Court just before 7:30 p.m. on March 12. Walker was transported to North Fulton Regional Hospital where he later died.

Police believe the suspects followed Walker from an Alpharetta Taco Bell, and was shot because of a gold chain he had in his possession.

Mary Jo Walker, Christopher's mother, said she was relieved to hear about the arrests.

"My first thought and expression was thank God. Thank God that these people are off the streets and not able to hurt anyone else," she said. "I remain in a place that I cannot be angry if I can help it. So that I can continue to honor Chris."

Mary Jo Walker said that she refuses to think about the men charged in her son's murder. She said that she focuses on remembering her son, who was a student at Georgia Perimeter College who had been accepted into Kennesaw State. He was also an aspiring musician.

"We're talking about a perfect gentleman, someone with amazing love for life and the people around him and not afraid to show it," said Mary Jo Walker.

Goins, Grant, and Davidson are charged with murder, aggravated assault, and attempted armed robbery. They are being held in the Fulton County Jail without bond.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.

    New York City is exploring ways to curb the speed of taxis. The Taxi and Limousine Commission this week issued a request for information on "anti speeding vehicle technologies."  The measures include devices that can intervene when drivers exceed posted speeds and "advisory systems" that can sound alarms when reckless driving is detected.
