MCDONOUGH, Ga. (AP) - Police in suburban Atlanta have arrested a teenager, saying he fatally shot two people, including a pregnant 18-year-old, in a drug-related robbery last week.

Aljahon Joyner, 17, was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of murder, McDonough police Maj. Kyle Helgerson told local news outlets. Joyner is also charged with feticide because one of the victims, Savannah Fulmer, was pregnant.

A passerby found Fulmer and 19-year-old Dahmir Robinson shot dead inside a car on Thursday in McDonough.

Joyner is being charged as an adult, authorities said. He’s also charged with two counts of armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm.

He remained jailed without bail on Monday. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer to speak for him.

Relatives said Fulmer and Robinson, a 2019 Woodland High School graduate, had been in a relationship for three years.

Fulmer had been a senior softball player at Eagles Landing High School. Her coach said the team will retire Fulmer’s number.
