Police took into custody a suspect in the recent murders of three people shot at a home in Georgia, officials said.
According to the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office, on March 21, Carlos Favors-Battle, 26, and a second suspect still on the loose are accused of going to the Rockmart residence to rob the victims, Clinton Matthew Aiola, 42, Cody Daniel Fuller, 30, and Davauntee Anthony Ramsay, also 30.
At 10:49 p.m., a person in the home phoned police and reported the triple shooting, and the caller said the two suspects were there to meet with the victims.
“Initially, two of the victims succumbed to their injuries on the scene and the third victim was in critical condition,” the sheriff’s office said, noting the third man later died at an area hospital from his injuries.
Paulding Deputies and Deputy US Marshals arrested Favors-Battle three days after the incident, on March 24.
In addition to the three counts of malice murder, Favors-Battle also faces charges that include aggravated assault with intent to rob or murder, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, and a probation violation.
Authorities said they anticipate charging Favors’ Battle with additional crimes.
The investigation is ongoing.
