ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A person of interest in connection to the Dollar General homicide investigation was picked up for questioning. Police are still searching for one other person for questioning.

Cohen Scott Mathews, 22, was arrested Wednesday morning with the assistance of the Lee County Sheriff's Office on an active arrest warrant unrelated to the case.

According to investigators, when they arrived, they found that Lisa Marie Grigg, 20, was hiding Mathews from law enforcement.

She was arrested and charged with one felony count of hindering the apprehension of a criminal, one count of possession of marijuana less than an ounce, and one count of possession of drug-related objects.

The Albany Police Department put out a lookout Tuesday morning for Mathews, Grigg and Heather Nicole Jeffcoat, 32, for questioning about the death of Javis Walker, 31.

Police are still looking to question Jeffcoat.

Grigg surrendered to law enforcement officers on Tuesday and was questioned by investigators about the Walker case. She was not charged by APD at that time.

Walker was killed when two men robbed a Dollar General in the 1900 block of East Oglethorpe Boulevard after 12 p.m. Friday.

Police said Walker entered the store when a robbery was taking place and tried to intervene. A struggle broke out and he was fatally wounded.

Anyone with information is urged to contact APD or CrimeSTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
