The man arrested by Liberty County Sheriff’s Office case Tuesday evening alleged shot a man to death April 8 in Tucker.
An advisory from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office alleges that Zaki Rauf Musheem shot Keith Toney Wood at Stone Mountain Inn in that city. They allegedly got into an argument that escalated to the point that Musheem pulled a weapon.
The 42-year-old was located at a service station on Airport Road using technology that LCSO Maj. Jeffery Hein declined to discuss. He did say Det. Richard Christian received a call from DeKalb County detectives, alerting him that Musheem, aka John Floyd Mallory, was a suspect in the DeKalb County homicide investigation and was believed to be in Liberty County.
Christian and patrol deputies placed the suspect under surveillance as he entered the store, Hein said.
The store was crowded and Musheem was allowed to drive off toward Walthourville. Deputies stopped his car by closing off a portion of Airport Road. Musheem did not resist arrest, Hein said.
The DeKalb County alert did not say what started the fatal argument.
In a wanted poster issued by DeKalb County, Musher was described as “extremely violent,” and anyone who should encounter him was urged to “use caution.”
