A 52-year-old Dunwoody man was killed June 20 by an armed robber after he pulled his own weapon and the two exchanged gunfire, according to a report by the Gwinnett County Police Department. The suspect was also killed.
Andrew Shin of Dunwoody and his wife, Soyoun Ahn, 53, were closing their Duluth business, Time Internet Café, at about midnight when they were approached by a man wearing a dark-colored hoodie and white mask, the report states. The masked man had a handgun and demanded money.
Shin took out his own handgun while Ahn hid behind their BMW SUV. She told police she heard gunfire and then saw her husband fall onto the sidewalk in front of their business. She said she also saw the suspect crawl to get into a car that then sped away toward Steve Reynolds Boulevard.
The driver of the getaway car is Kendra Yvonne Gates, 22, of Stone Mountain. The suspect, her boyfriend, was identified as Diante Doby, 22, of Snellville. Doby told Gates he was shot and she pulled over into a McDonalds parking lot on Pleasant Hill Road and called 911.
Shin was pronounced dead at his business and Doby was pronounced dead at the McDonalds.
Gates was arrested at the McDonalds and charged with armed robbery and is being held at the Gwinnett County Jail.
