Shell Gas Station Murderer Captured In Columbus By SHERIFF VICTOR HILL’S Elite Fugitive Squad


On Wednesday May 8, at approximately 10pm, Officers and Detectives from the Clayton County Police Department responded to the Shell Gas Station located at 6141 Hwy 85 to a person shot call.  Upon arrival, officers observed a vehicle in the middle of the parking lot of the gas station.  Multiple bullet holes were discovered on the left side of the vehicle.  Inside the vehicle, seated in the driver’s seat, officers found a male victim, who was unresponsive.  The victim had sustained a gunshot wound on the left side of his torso and underneath his left arm.  


Homicide Detectives worked relentlessly for 24 hours and successfully identified Christopher Cortez Young as the shooter taking out warrants for his arrest for malice murder and Aggravated Assault.


Clayton County Police Homicide Detectives then threw the ball to Sheriff Victor Hill’s Elite Fugitive Squad who hunted Young all the way to Columbus Georgia where he was captured a few hours ago without incident 


Young is now facing the wall at Georgia’s toughest para-military jail now better known as “The Hill-ton”.
