Athens-Clarke County police arrested a man early this morning on a malice murder charge, hours after police say he shot and killed a man.

 

At around 11 PM last night, officers were dispatched to a report of gunshots at Perry’s Convenience Store on Cedar Shoals Drive where they found David Cooper, 24, of Athens, with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

 

Officers learned Cooper was shot following a dispute with Randy Levrette, 26, of Athens.

 

 

“As Levrette was sitting in a car at this location, he was approached by Cooper and another individual,” Gilland said. “An altercation occurred and Levrette shot Cooper multiple times.”

 

Police arrested Levrette at about 3:50 a.m. this morning at the Parkview Homes Apartments.
