Conyers Police have arrested three Conyers residents for their connection to the killing of a Conyers man, who was fatally shot in his apartment Tuesday, Dec. 30. 

Paul Greene, 28, Joey Jackson II, 18, and Martria Hunley, 17, are being charged with felony murder in the shooting death of 24-year-old Jarvis Hughey.

Kim Lucas, spokesperson for the Conyers Police, says there’s enough physical evidence to put at least one of the suspects in Hughey’s Meadow Crossing apartment, 1190 Mill Crest Walk, in Conyers at the time of the shooting, and there’s also evidence that puts all three together during the same time frame. 

While there weren’t any drugs discovered at Hughey’s apartment, police are classifying the incident as a drug-related robbery, says Lucas. 

Police don’t have evidence to assume that the three took any drugs from the apartment either.

“That was their intent,” said Lucas. “I guess they assumed there would be something there but there was not.”

Lucas says that the official word on what led to Hughey being shot won’t be disclosed until court proceedings. 

According to the autopsy, Hughey was shot twice in the head from two different handguns, a semi-automatic and a revolver, killing him instantly. Police are still waiting on the coroner’s report. 

Around 9 p.m. Friday night, Jackson was arrested after police found marijuana in his possession when they brought him in to ask him questions related to the Hughey case. Including the murder charge, Jackson is also being charged with two counts of aggravated assault, possession of marijuana, cruelty to children and theft by receiving stolen property.

Green and Hunley were arrested a few hours later in their apartment, 1179 Oak villa Court, Conyers, at 11:19 p.m. and 1:30 a.m., Saturday morning. Their apartment is located across the street from Hughey’s apartment complex.

Greene is being charged with two counts of possession or transfer of a firearm, aggravated assault, felony murder, murder and cruelty to children. Hunley is being charged with felony murder and murder.

All three suspects are in Rockdale County Jail. 

Greene and Jackson work together. Jackson and Hunley are dating each other. All three had an association to Hughey, said Lucas.
