Man wanted for triple homicide believed to be headed for Chicago, other cities

By Alyson Shields Reporter
SNELLVILLE - The Gwinnett County Police Department think the man they believe is responsible for a triple homicide is on the run to one of three cities: Chicago, Albany, Ga. or Crossville, Tenn.

The suspect, 33 year old Robert Bell, allegedly shot and killed three people intentionally in Snellville on Sunday. His victims included a mother, her 12 year old son and 19 year old godson. Authorities released today that each of the deceased victims were shot multiple times. Bell also allegedly shot and injured another person, who later called 911. Bell is wanted for three counts of felony murder and one count of aggravated assault.

The suspect's motive is still unclear to authorities. Bell is considered armed and dangerous; any one who encounters him should contact 911.
