VALDOSTA, Ga. (WCTV) - The Valdosta Police Department says it arrested a suspect in connection to the Sept. 7 murder outside of a restaurant.

According to police, a 21-year-old man was shot and killed outside of Andy’s It’s All Good BBQ on West Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive around 3:30 a.m. that day.

On Friday, Oct. 23, VPD detectives got arrest warrants for Raynard Reid on felony murder and aggravated assault charges after a lengthy investigation. On Monday, deputies with the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office found Reid at his home and arrested him.
