ATLANTA (AP) — Police say the suspect accused of killing two teenagers near Atlanta stole the girl’s wallet and the boy’s car jumper cables after he killed both with gunshots to the head.

The details are contained in arrest warrants filed in the municipal court of Roswell, Georgia, an Atlanta suburb.

The warrants say 20-year-old Jeffrey Hazelwood followed 17-year-olds Natalie Henderson and Carter Davis into an alley behind a Publix grocery store before shooting each teenager once in the head Aug. 1.

Hazelwood is charged with murder and theft. Police have declined to discuss a possible motive for the slayings.

Hazelwood’s attorney, Lawrence Zimmerman, has said he will provide a vigorous defense.

Henderson and Davis, who used to live in Rapid City, South Dakota, would have been high school seniors this year.
