ORIGINAL STORY: A Douglasville man was found guilty of shooting and killing a Powder Springs man outside Cumberland Mall over Thanksgiving weekend 2011, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.
In November, Smyrna-Vinings Patch reported that Rosano Wensley Bundel, 28, of Douglasville, met 29-year-old George B. Tabetando of Powder Springs outside Macy’s. The AJC reported that the purpose of the meeting was to conduct a deal involving counterfeit money.
Apparently the deal went bad and the two men began fighting, witnesses said. Then witnesses said Bundel fired several shots at Tabetando while chasing him into the roadway. Bundel fled the scene in a dark-colored BMW.
Tabetando was taken to Emory-Adventist Hospital in Smyrna where he died from his injuries.
Investigators launched a search for Bundel who ultimately turned himself in to the Cobb County Adult Detention Center at the advice of his attorney.
