Who is De’ja McCrary? Georgia mother dead at apartment complex

De’ja McCrary was fatally shot in the Camelot Condominiums, a property south of Atlanta.


According to WXIA, a Georgia woman was shot and died after her ex-boyfriend “lured” her to an apartment complex south of Atlanta to confront his current girlfriend.

De’ja McCrary came to Camelot Condominiums with her 4-year-old son, who suffered minor scratches during the alleged ambush, according to South Fulton Police Department Chief Keith Meadows.

According to WXIA, McCrary’s ex-boyfriend Colvin Lindsey is accused of setting her up for a “fight” with his new girlfriend Teandra Brox.

According to prison records, Lindsey was arrested on May 30 and charged with murder, aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon, possession of a handgun during the commission of a felony, and being affiliated with a street gang while committing a crime.


Brox was arrested on murder and aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon charges on June 1.

According to WXIA, another suspect, Aquala Barnes, is suspected of communicating with McCrary about where she should go. According to prison records, she was also charged with homicide and aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon.

South Fulton Mayor Khalid Kamau moved into the Camelot Condominiums earlier this year to gain a better understanding of the neighborhood and how to improve the region, which has seen a rash of violent incidents in recent years.

In January, a lady was stabbed numerous times at the apartment complex, and three men were murdered there in a triple homicide in May 2021.
