A Gainesville man has been arrested on charges of murder. After fleeing from ities, leading them on a brief foot chase, Billy Galvez was taken into custody Tuesday night. He is accused of killing Alejandro Ramirez in Gwinnett County last July.
Investigators were able to pinpoint Galvez as a suspect, but before being able to arrest him, he fled from a federal law enforcement officer.
According to a FB post from the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office, the Fugitive Unit investigators were able to track Galvez to a park in Forsyth County. After about a half-hour search, K9 Hummer with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office was able to locate the suspect hiding in a dumpster at the park.
Galvez is wanted by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation on charges of malice murder and aggravated assault.
The original shooting incident happened at an event hall, according to the AJC. On July 5, Norcross police received a call about gunfire at the Fusion Event Hall on Brook Hollow Parkway. They arrived at the Norcross location to find Alejandro Ramirez, 35, with multiple gunshot wounds. He was declared dead a short time later.
Galvez remains in the Gwinnett County jail without bond.
