A third suspect in Montgomery's Haardt Drive homicide case is under arrest, according to investigators. 

Members of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force located Eric Johnson in the Atlanta, Georgia area Tuesday morning.

Johnson, 28, is being held in Fulton County, Georgia pending an extradition back to Alabama.

Once he's returns to Montgomery, Johnson will be charged with murder in connection with the death of Garry Blackwell. Blackwell was gunned down on February 4 on North Haardt Drive.

Two other suspects are already in custody and charged with Blackwell's homicide.

Justin McCall and Ellis Diggs, both 27, are being held on bonds of $60,000 at the Montgomery County Detention Facility.

The homicide investigation is ongoing.
