DeKalb police have arrested a man wanted in connection to the murder of a BP clerk.

52-year-old Earlin Turner was arrested Thursday at 2075 Lake Park Dr., Apartment B after being spotted by Fugitive Squad members. 

Turner is accused of shooting Damodar Pathak in the abdomen at the gas station on Cedar Grove Road.

A witness stated that two men entered the store, and Turner shot Pathak as he entered the store's game room area.  The two men fled on foot before police arrived. 

Store video captured the images of both men.  Turner's alleged accomplice turned himself into DeKalb police.
