ROSWELL, Ga. Only a few hours after two men were murdered in Roswell, police made an arrest.

About 3 p.m. June 5, two men were shot dead in their car outside 125 Lynwood Drive, not far from Roswell's popular Canton Street. Neighbors heard the gunshots that killed Nicholas Farrell Abry, 20, of 125 Lynwood Drive, and Spencer David Long, 20, of Atlanta. They were sitting in their car outside Abry's home.

According to witnesses, the gunman was driving a charcoal gray Audi sedan with chrome wheels, tinted windows and a white paper drive out tag with blue writing.

Soon after the initial call, Roswell 911 received calls about a reckless driver on Ga. 120/Marietta Highway in the area of Coleman Road. The vehicle was close to the description of the vehicle witnesses saw leaving the scene of the murder. Officers converged on the area and located the vehicle in the parking lot of the Kroger shopping center located at 900 Marietta Highway in Roswell.

At the time, it was not immediately clear that the Audi and sole occupant, Stephen Oliver Heller, 31, of Marietta, was involved in the homicides.

Heller was arrested on a suspended license charge and held at the Roswell Detention Center as the investigation continued. Through subsequent investigation, the gun suspected of use in the Crime as well as the white paper drive out tag was located.

Roswell Police Spokesman Zack Frommer said the gun was found in the woods near the Kroger where they arrested Heller. Police believe Heller tossed it away. Tests will be done on it to confirm if it was used in the shooting.

Using evidence and witness statements gathered, Roswell Police detectives obtained homicide arrest warrants on Heller.

Frommer said Heller has a history with the Roswell PD.

"He has a criminal and aggressive history," Frommer said.

Police suspect money and possibly drugs were the motives in the crime.
