1 arrested, 1 still sought in deadly Cherokee Co. carjacking

Posted: Updated:
CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. -

Investigators in Cherokee County are working to determine who fired the shot that killed a suspected carjacker on Thursday.

Police say a group of men planned to meet and hang out. Something went wrong and 19-year-old Justin Humphries said that he was carjacked.

Authorities believe Humphries was being pistol-whipped when the weapon went off.

The bullet hit the driver, 27-year-old Andre Rodriguez. He crashed the car into a tree and died.  The other two suspects, Jumar Greer and Maurice Perkins, escaped.

Greer was arrested in Tennessee on Friday after investigators received a tip that they were headed to Chicago.

Perkins is still on the loose.  He is considered armed and dangerous.  Police ask anyone who sees him to call 911.
