      Gwinnett County Police Department officers were dispatched to an aggravated assault call in the 4000 block of Anderson-Livsey Lane in Snellville around 9:00 PM on September 15, 2013.

      The caller stated that a man was chasing a woman outside and firing a gun at her.

      Arriving officers found two people outside the residence that suffered from gunshot wounds. Both were transported to the hospital and considered to be in serious condition.

      34-year-old Angelina Benton was the primary resident of the home and later died as a result of her multiple gunshot wounds.

      23-year-old Justin Cato was shot in the leg but is expected to survive. He was able to call for help shortly after the initial caller. Cato is Benton's boyfriend.

      The GCPD SWAT team responded to the scene due to suspicions that the suspect was still inside the residence. The suspect was not located but Benton's son and godson, were discovered deceased from multiple gunshot wounds inside the home.

      The suspect is 33-year-old black male named Robert E. Bell. He is believed to be six feet tall and weigh 300-pounds. His vehicle, a black SUV, was recovered at the scene. An assault rifle, similar to an AR-15, was located in the vehicle and detectives believe it may be the murder weapon.

      Bell has active warrants for three counts of felony murder and one count of aggravated assault. His current whereabouts are unknown but officers believe he may be traveling to Chicago, IL, Albany, GA or Crossville, TN.

      Detectives still do not know the suspect's motive but believe Bell's actions were intentional. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
