Local lawman finds Clayton murder suspect
A suspect wanted for murdering a Clayton County sheriff’s deputy in Riverdale earlier today was spotted this evening by a Fayette County investigator participating in the manhunt, The Citizen has learned.
Jonathan Bun, 17 of Riverdale was arrested early this evening as more than 200 law enforcement officers from surrounding agencies participated in the search.
Deputies and detectives from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office took part in the search, including the Hawk 1 aviation unit.
Bun was located as the law enforcement officers formed a “line” search in which they formed up side by side and paraded from the scene of the incident on Walker Road toward where the suspect was last seen, police said.
The line of officers, with their guns drawn, was waiting for another group of officers to clear a nearby home when the Fayette investigator began poking through a grassy area and soon after shouted that he found the suspect, police said.
