ATLANTA (AP) - Police say a security guard has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a colleague in the lobby of an office tower in the Buckhead commercial area.

Local news media report that Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones says 26-year-old Dexter Harper has been charged with murder in the death of 23-year-old Emmanuel C. Nwankwo. The shooting happened shortly before 5 a.m. Thursday.

Lt. Charles Hampton says officers responding to the building found the dead security guard, who had been shot multiple times.

Harper is being held at the Fulton County Jail. It’s unclear whether Harper has an attorney.

The Atlanta newspaper reports that investigators were focused on the elevator area of 200 Tower Place, which houses several businesses and the Buckhead campus of Georgia State University’s business college.
