Clayton County Police have identified two men wanted in connection with a fatal shooting at a Little Caesars Pizza shop last week.

Darnell Michael Matthews, 20, and Anthony Idris Bostic, 22, are wanted for the April 13 shooting death of one man, and the wounding of another, at the Little Caesars located at 6550 Mt. Zion Boulevard, Morrow.

Detectives have obtained warrants for the arrest of each suspect on murder and aggravated charges in the shooting death of Brian Patterson Jr., 25, of Rex, and for shooting Quantavius Robinson, 20, of Atlanta, in the foot.

Patterson was shot in the chest outside the restaurant and later pronounced dead at Southern Regional Medical Center, according to Clayton County Police Lt. Rebecca Brown.

Robinson was ordering pizza at the counter inside the restaurant when a bullet went through the window and struck him in the foot, Brown said.

According to a police report, the shooting started when "three black males exited the business. [A witness] stated that an unknown vehicle pulled up with three males inside shouting 'shawty, hey shawty' then 4 to 5 shots were fired from the vehicle at the three subjects standing in front of the business."

Police said they consider Matthews and Bostic armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on their whereabouts was asked to call 911.
