1 restaurant gunman found dead; other at-large

Fayetteville police have recovered the body of a gunman who was shot when he and another armed man attempted to rob the China Cafe restaurant in Fayetteville late Friday night.

The body of Alonzo Starks, 25, of Morrow, was found in an abandoned house in Morrow, which detectives learned about earlier today when they arrested the getaway driver involved in the heist, police said. The driver was identified as Alvin James Scott, 26, of Jonesboro.

Meanwhile, police have issued warrants for the second gunman who stormed into the back door of the restaurant and shot a restaurant employee, police said. That suspect, identified as Leandro Bernard Johnson, 27, is driving a 2005 burgandy Buick Lacrosse with a drive-out tag, police said.

One of the China Cafe employees fired a shot that struck the deceased gunman in the head, and the other assailant returned fire, hitting the other restaurant employee, police said.

The restaurant employee who was shot remained in critical condition at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, police said.

The break in the case came from one of Starks' relatives who suspected he was involved in the shooting, police said.

Fayetteville police have been working the case continuously since the incident was first reported at 10:50 p.m. Friday night. Also assisting have been the police departments in Morrow and Clayton County, officials said.
