A suspect who was killed in a car wreck following a home invasion on Oct. 4, died of a self-inflicted gun shot, not from the accident, according to Clayton County police.
Kenneth Kenard Fortson, 21, died when the pickup truck he and three other suspects were traveling in overturned on Roberts Drive across from Riverdale High School.
That accident happened after the three men had allegedly forced entry into a home on Fairway Pointe Drive in Riverdale and demanded money and a video game, according to police.
"He was found with a weapon in his hand, after the truck crashed," said Clayton Police Officer Eddie Soto. "It appears he accidentally shot himself in the head."
The truck's driver, Denico Deangelo Hawkins, 34, of Atlanta, is charged with armed robbery and burglary. Ramon Gartez Blalock, 18, of Hapeville, is charged with armed robbery, burglary and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime. Quinton Lamont Oliver, 32, of Atlanta, is charged with possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime, obstruction of an officer and giving false information to a police officer.
