Dekalb,Co (WAOK)- Just as searchers were about to start looking for 19-year-old Derrick Jamal Linkhorn, his body was found. Linkhorn had been reported missing a week earlier, DeKalb County police said Friday afternoon. The body of Linkhorn was found in a storage area of apartments on Mountain View Drive. It was not known how long Linkhorn’s body may be been at the apartment complex.

Police have charged one teenager with the homicide and are looking for two additional suspects, according to Dekalb Police spokesperson Mekka Parish.  Antarious Johnson, 17, is in custody, but investigators continue to search for Malcolm Wilson, 19, and Marcus Estes, 18.

The suspects were seen with the victim in a MARTA surveillance video.

Investigators believe a dispute led to the shooting, Parish said. Detectives were lead to the body through evidence in the case.
