ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -
A fourth arrest was made on Wednesday in connection to Jerrick Jackson's homicide.
Mega church leader Wiley Jackson spoke to his congregation Sunday morning after the first of four arrests were made in connection to his brother's murder.
Jerrick Jackson, 46, was shot and killed outside his residence in Northwest Atlanta, early in the morning of May 7.
Atlanta Police investigators believe Jackson and his fiancée were followed by several men who attacked them once they parked in their driveway.
On Thursday, Aug. 1, Police arrested 17-year-old Alejandro Pitts, charging him with Jerrick Jackson's murder. The next day, 19-year-old Geno Lewis turned himself in and was also charged in connection with the murder.
On Aug. 6, Felton D. Lovejoy, 18, was charged with two counts of murder and armed robbery. Lovejoy was taken to Fulton County Jail. On Aug. 7, Demetrius Morgan, 17, was arrested and charged with homicide.
Wiley Jackson is the leader of the Gospel Tabernacle Cathedral, which has campuses in Atlanta, Stone Mountain, and Griffin. Jackson addressed the progress made by investigators as soon as he took the stage in front of his congregation Sunday morning.
"I want to thank the Atlanta police department," said Bishop Jackson, at which point people in the congregation applauded. Jackson said he has forgiven he suspects.
"My family's impacted. (The suspects') family is impacted. As I said before, gotta forgive them. Because that's what Christians do."
