Early Tuesday morning, deputies responded to a shooting at a Bouldercrest Circle home. Two adults were found dead from apparent gunshot wounds, and two juveniles were found unharmed, said Oconee Sheriff James Hale.
The suspect, Peyton Valor Moyer, 20, who also lives at the residence, had already fled the scene in one of the victim’s vehicles.
Moyer was later located by Athens-Clarke County Police and arrested after a short pursuit.
The victims have been identified as Moyer’s mother and stepfather, Ashley Schutza and Benjamin Smith.
