Third man charged in deadly shooting of sleeping toddler in southwest Atlanta

Third man charged in deadly shooting of sleeping toddler in southwest Atlanta, A third man has been arrested for the fatal shooting of a sleeping 2-year-old girl in November.

But it’s still unclear what motivated the shooting of the toddler and her 1-year-old brother, who survived.

Mr. Marquez Thomas, 23, was booked into the jail Tuesday on charges of murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and reckless conduct, according to booking records.

Ty-Teyanna Motley was killed and her brother, Isaiah, was injured in the Nov. 3, shooting, Atlanta police said.

The children were sleeping in a bed with their grandmother when shots were fired around 1:40 a.m. through the front door of the family’s Polar Rock Place home in southwest Atlanta.

Last Wednesday, police arrested brothers Mr. Montez Thompkins, 21, and Mr. Jeremy Jemell Thompkins, 23, on similar charges for the double shooting.

The infants' grandmother, Ms. Deborah Howard, told police she was awakened by the gunshots and discovered the two children had been shot lying next to her in the foldout sofa bed.

All three remained in the Fulton County Jail Wednesday.
