Dec. 02--A third suspect is behind bars in connection with the October 2014 shooting death of a Papa John's employee.

Majestick Alveleano Gillespie, 21, was arrested after he was indicted by a grand jury Tuesday for the murder of 22-year-old Gordon Schaffer, District Attorney Brent Cooper confirmed Thursday. He remained in the Maury County Jail on Thursday in lieu of a $250,000 bond.

"We let a special grand jury meet, and they returned indictments against Mr. Gillespie for especially aggravated robbery and felony murder," Cooper said. "He will appear in Maury County circuit court probably within the first week or two of December. He'll be arraigned then, which is kind of the kick-off point of the prosecution."

At the time of the Oct. 20, 2014 incident, Schaffer, who had just started working at the Shady Brook Street location, was the only person inside the Papa John's. The suspects forced Schaffer to open the cash register, and he complied. Despite cooperating with the robbers' demands, they ultimately shot him.

The incident occurred at about 10 p.m. and was caught on surveillance footage. Police said Schaffer was on the phone with his manager at the time, who heard the robbery, hung up and called police.

Two of the suspects were seen in the footage and sufficient evidence from the investigation led to a third arrest, Cooper said.

"There were two people that were on videotape," Cooper said. "But we knew all along that there was at least one other person involved, and it took until just recently for the evidence to materialize that allowed us to pursue charges against that person."

When officers arrived, they found Schaffer on the ground next to the register. He was airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he later died.

Police arrested Darious Fitzpatrick, who was 17 at the time, shortly after the incident. He told police during an interrogation that he shot the victim intending to kill him. Kavoyeh Pye, also 17, was identified a few months later and turned himself in on charges of felony murder and especially aggravated robbery. Both still await trial, Cooper said.

"Mr. Fitzpatrick is still incarcerated, and I've heard that Mr. Pye recently made his bond that was set," Cooper said.
