Gwinnett Police release name of suspected gunman

By Derreck Booth Anchor/reporter
SNELLVILLE - Gwinnett County Police have released the name and description of the man they believe responsible for the shooting deaths of three people in Snellville Sunday evening.

Robert E. Bell, 33, is wanted for three counts of felony murder and one count of aggravated assault. He allegedly shot four people at the home he and his wife had been invited to stay in.

The initial call came around 9:00 p.m. to Anderson-Livsey Lane, a report of a aggravated domestic situation, according to police.

Responding officers found two people with gunshot wounds outside the home. Authorities said Angelina Benton, 34, was the primary resident of the home. She died from her injuries. The other victim outside the house, Justin Cato, 23, was shot in the leg, but was expected to survive, according to police. Cato was Benton's boyfriend.

The police SWAT team responded on suspicions the gunman remained inside the house. Police didn't find the suspect, but found the bodies of Joseph McDonald, 12, and Raynord Daniel, 19. McDonald was Benton's son. Daniel was her godson and also lived in the house.

According to police, Benton allowed Bell and his wife, Danielle Hill-Bell, 22, to move into her home about two weeks ago as an act of charity. Police said the victims and suspect appeared to be on good terms prior to the shooting.

Hill is described as black, 33-years-old, six feet tall and 300 pounds. Investigators said Hill's black SUV was recovered at the scene with an AR-15 style rifle inside.

Police put out a description of Hill-Bell, but did not call her a suspect. She is described as black, 5'03" tall and 215 pounds.



Gwinnett County Police ask that anyone with information on the case call (770) 513-5300. Investigators said anyone encountering Bell should call 911.
