A 20-year-old man was arrested Wednesday in Georgia in connection with the murder of two 17-year-olds behind a Publix grocery store, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The bodies of Natalie Henderson and Carter Davis were found by a delivery driver Monday in Roswell; each had been shot in the head. According to WXIA, police arrested Jeffrey Hazelwood after interviewing him at police headquarters. Authorities wouldn't say if or how Hazelwood knew the victims or give a possible motive for the killings. They do believe Hazelwood is the only suspect in the murders.

Police say security camera footage and the victims' cellphones led to Hazelwood as a suspect. Police also spent a few hours searching a home in connection to the case Wednesday, WSB reports. Hazelwood's Facebook page reportedly shows he was involved in a romantic relationship with someone living at the home that was searched. He's been charged with two counts of murder.
