George Richardson, 23, was arrested in Tampa about a week and a half ago. He is charged with aggravated assault, murder, and felony murder in the shooting death of Carnell Saintville, and is fighting extradition to Georgia. 

GBI agents say they are still looking to question other people but have no active warrants at this time. 

Zankee Newsome was brought in from Florida in September, where he was arrested on Monday for the murder of 19-year old Carnell Saintville.

Arianna Hughes was already in custody at the Crisp County Law Enforcement Center and police are still looking for more clues and potential suspects in the case.

Saintville was shot early Sunday morning in the 1100 block of South 15th Street and then brought to Crisp Regional Hospital where he passed away. 

Officials believe a possible motive could have been that Saintville owed the suspects money.

Cordele Police would like anyone who has information about the shooting to call the Police Department at (229) 276-2921.
