Dontavious Carr #3 on SHERIFF LEVON ALLEN'S “Top Ten” is now in custody

On 5/3/2022, College Park Police Department (CPPD) responded to a person shot at an address on Godby Rd. Upon their arrival, they discovered a male, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was rushed to the hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries. 

The Detectives at the CPPD Investigated & Identified Dontavious Carr as the suspect. Carr arrived at the Godby Rd address, while the mother of his child had company gathered at her house.

Carr found the company gathered in her bedroom and immediately became enraged. He began to fire shots in the home hallway. Three of the 4 occupants were able to escape the gunfire by running into the nearby children’s bedroom and hiding in the closet. 

The victim was unable to escape and was struck three times in the hallway screaming for help. Carr left the residence just before the police arrived. 

Today, Dontavious Carr was spotted breaking into cars in Sandy Springs. Carr fled the scene, but was later tracked to the City of Atlanta for breaking into cars again.

Georgia State Patrol (GSP) was closing in on his location, he hopped into a vehicle, and attempted to flee again. Carr was no match for the GSP Officers as his vehicle was quickly disabled. Carr jumped out of the  vehicle, and attempted to escape on foot.

Carr reached for his waist area while running and was tased and taken into custody. When GSP officers conducted a search of Carr’s person, they found a loaded handgun in his waistband. 

Dontavious Carr was turned over to Clayton County Sheriff’s Office, where he was #3 on Sheriff Levon Allen’s ‘Top Ten Most Wanted’.
