All three teenage suspects in a Suwanee murder case are in custody after a fugitive at large turned himself in to the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office.

Lawrenceville resident Joshua Ryan Poteat, 17, turned himself in about 2:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26. He was the final suspect on the run following the alleged murder of a 16-year-old boy in Suwanee.

According to Suwanee police, officers responded to a report of a person shot on Tuesday, July 19, at the Residences at McGinnis apartment complex off McGinnis Ferry Road. There, officers found a young male, later identified as 16-year-old Abel Castellanos, dead with a gunshot wound to his chest.


Miguel Gabriel Flores, 16, of Lawrenceville, had previously been arrested and is being detained at the Regional Youth Detention Center on charges of felony murder, armed robbery and aggravated assault. A second suspect in the case, 17-year-old Jermaine Dondi Rimson, also of Lawrenceville, was taken into custody following a brief foot pursuit involving Boston Fugitive Task Force officers the evening of Thursday, Aug. 25. He is awaiting extradition from Boston.
