Man charged after teens killed by gunshots to the head behind Roswell Publix

ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities have made an arrest on Wednesday afternoon after two 17 year olds were found dead behind a Publix grocery store on Monday in Roswell, Ga.

Earlier Wednesday, police in the Atlanta suburb said they were searching a house as they investigate the gunshot deaths.

20-year-old Jeffrey Hazelwood was charged with the murder of Natalie Henderson and Carter Davis.

Roswell police Det. Zachary Frommer said detectives executed a search warrant Wednesday morning at a home in nearby Cobb County, a few miles from the Publix store where the boy and girl were found before dawn Monday.

Police have said the bodies of  Henderson and Davis were found by a delivery driver on the ground by two vehicles. The Fulton County medical examiner said both teens were killed with a single gunshot wound to the head.

Frommer said information received in the investigation led detectives to the house, where they were searching for evidence in the killings. He declined to be more specific.
