A Richmond Hill man has been charged with murder in the Sunday shooting death of Jabez Ali McNair, 19, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Eric Montrell Wright, 36, is charged with shooting McNair at a Laurel Hill Circle address. He was taken into custody by the Richmond Hill Police Department.

The GBI said local authorities responded to a 911 call around 2:45 p.m. Sunday saying shots had been fired and a man was down at the home at 583 Laurel Hill Circle, which is in the Main Street subdivision.

Police found McNair “suffering from multiple gunshot wounds,” according to the GBI.

McNair was pronounced dead at the scene, the GBI said.

McNair was the boyfriend of Wright’s teenage daughter, and both lived at the Laurel Hill home, according to authorities.

The case is still under investigation, the GBI said.
