Police have charged a 26-year-old Alpharetta man with felony murder following the death of a shooting victim.

On the morning of Oct. 16, someone called 911, saying they heard arguing coming from a nearby apartment on Jefferson Way in Alpharetta.

Police went to the apartment and found Sanaa Merani with a gunshot wound to her head. She was taken to the hospital, where she later died from her injuries.

Police said Merani was shot during a fight with a man named Alamin Nanji.

Officers arrested Nanji at the scene and charged him with aggravated battery. That charge was upgraded to felony murder after Merani died.
