Police say a woman was found dead inside a Gwinnett County home late Friday.

Chessington Marshall, 26, was found at a residence on the 5500 block of Estates Court in Norcross.

John Briggs, the victim's boyfriend, called to report he killed his girlfriend during a domestic dispute, according to a spokesperson with the Gwinnett County Police Department.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found the deceased woman in the bathroom with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Briggs remained at the house, however, while handcuffed he fled the scene.

The 23-year-old suspect was later found at 12:10 a.m. at the intersection of Jimmy Carter Boulevard and I-85 by an officer en route to an unrelated call.

He is charged with felony murder and aggravated assault.
