COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Police in Georgia announced six people have been arrested in the shooting death of a man during a home invasion.

Ceuion English, 23; Anthony Foster, 23; Laqwane Kindred, 26; and Trevonuis Williams, 22, were charged with murder and booked in jail Wednesday, news outlets reported citing Columbus police.

Two female juveniles also were arrested, police said according to news outlets.

Cross Henderson, 21, was fatally shot Saturday at a home in Columbus. He was in the house with his brother and a friend when intruders broke in, Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan told The Ledger-Enquirer.

Officials from the Columbus police department’s SWAT team, sheriff’s officers and Columbus firefighters helped capture the suspects while executing search and arrest warrants, the newspaper reported.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for later this month. It’s unclear whether the suspects had attorneys who could comment on their behalf.
