Killed – Male Teen – Jonathan Pearcey (DeKalb, GA)

A DeKalb County teen shot in the face last week died over the weekend, police said.

Jonathan Pearcey, 15, died on Saturday, after being in critical condition from the gunshot wound he suffered early Friday morning, police said.

Pearcey’s friend, 17-year-old Jacob Christmas, was arrested mid-day Friday and charged with aggravated assault in Pearcey’s shooting, police said.

Christmas is now charged with murder, DeKalb County Police Capt. Steven Fore told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Fore said there had been an ongoing dispute between the teens that “finally came to a head.” The teens were close friends and it wasn’t uncommon for one to be at the other’s home.

Police said Christmas had been at Pearcey’s home hours before the shooting. Christmas left, Fore said, and returned around 2:30 a.m., and shot Pearcey.

Police were called, and Christmas was later arrested at his home where officers found a handgun, Fore said.

The teen was one of a number of people at a home on Hillcrest Drive SE when he was shot at about 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 27.
