The MARTA Police Department has made an arrest in the Feb. 25 shooting aboard an eastbound train near Kensington Station.

Thoth Gray, 34, was taken into custody on March 2, by MARTA’s Special Operations Response Team and the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force. Gray was charged with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

“Although I regret this incident occurred, our detectives with very few leads were able to identify the suspect in less than 32 hours,” said MARTA Police Chief Wanda Y. Dunham. “The victim in this case is in good condition and has been released from the hospital.”

MARTA police officers recovered a handgun at the scene and Gray remains the only suspect in the shooting. The case will be turned over to the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office for criminal prosecution.
