Second teen arrested in murder of Atlanta wedding guest
Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | 02 Aug 18 | Carrie Teegardin Alan Judd

Police arrested a second suspect Thursday in a fatal shooting outside a north Atlanta country club as new details emerged about the leniency granted in an earlier case to the 17-year-old accused gunman.

Jayden Myrick, who was arrested in the shooting last month, was “the big test case” for reforming juvenile offenders outside of adult prison, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Doris Downs told the teenager during a hearing on March 12, according to a transcript made public Thursday. Downs overruled a prosecutor’s insistence that Myrick was dangerous and a request to revoke his probation for an armed robbery he committed in 2015 at age 14.

Downs told Myrick at the end of the March hearing, “I’m pulling for you.”

“I’ve got your name etched in the back of my head,” the judge said. “I go to sleep at night and I’m wondering where you are and what you are up to … [The prosecutor] says we’ve made the mistake of a lifetime, and I’m hoping we’re right.”

Four months later, Myrick was back in jail, accused of killing 34-year-old Christian Broder, a Washington, D.C., restaurant executive who was in Atlanta for a wedding. Broder, a husband and father of an infant, died about two weeks after the July 8 shooting.

On Thursday, the Atlanta Police Department arrested the second suspect, 19-year-old Torrus Fleetwood, who is accused of driving a stolen 2014 Dodge Charger to the gates of the Capital City Club near Brookhaven, where Broder and three others were waiting for an Uber after leaving the wedding reception. Police said it was Myrick who jumped out, pointed a gun at the wedding guests and demanded their belongings. Broder followed Myrick, trying to negotiate, according to police reports, and Myrick pulled the trigger, shooting him in the stomach.

Husband and father Christian Broder was murdered during a robbery while waiting for an Uber following a wedding reception. Broder and three others were robbed of their wallets and cell phones. After complying with the robbery, Broder foolishly approached Myrick in an effort to ask for his driver's license returned. He was shot and died in the hospital after fighting for his life for two weeks.

Career criminals Jayden Myrick (17) and Torrus Fleetwood (19) have been arrested.

They just wanted his driver’s license because they were aspiring rig drivers, and wanted to dream about their future.

There was a mix-up, and Broder ends up getting shot! A completely honest mistake.

Well, I suppose when they live in neighborhoods with punks like this roaming wild, it's not unexpected.

Hopefully, they be able to contemplate what they did wrong for a little bit before their prison inmates end it all for them.

The judge needs to be sued into poverty and kicked to the curb.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Doris . . .

This seems to be a recurring part of the problem of violent repeat offenders. Who the hell is afraid of a judge named "Doris"? Some punk who has already showed evidence he's a violent psycho?

I implore everyone to read the full article to see how many breaks these two were given to "turn their lives around."

At 14 they were committing armed robberies yet were repeatedly turned loose through "diversion programs" by soft judges who thought they would go on to build orphanages and cure cancer.

And now an infant will never know her father and a young wife is widowed.

This whole story disgusts me beyond words.

Another unexpected disappointment for those who thought it was the Amish or Mormons.

Most likely they will have the upper hand in prison.
