DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- A 23-year-old National Guard member foiled an attempted robbery at a DeKalb County restaurant Sunday night.
It happened at the Sonic in the Belvedere Plaza shopping center near the intersection of Memorial and Columbia drives.
Investigators said the victim, Joseph Toombs, was waiting in line at the drive-thru when he saw three suspects approach him on foot. At least one suspect was armed with a gun.
Police said Toombs pulled out his own gun and shot at the suspects, striking 19-year-old Kenneth Brayboy. Brayboy was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition; he later died.
The other two suspects ran; one has since been caught. That suspect, 17-year-old Desmond McKnight, has been charged with murder, criminal attempt to commit armed robbery and tampering with evidence.
