According to the Floyd County Police Department two teenagers have been arrested for the death of a woman who was shot inside her home in Shannon last week; one is being held at the Floyd County Jail and the other is at a youth detention facility in Rome.
Tyree Kozel Daniels, age 18 of Cedartown, was arrested on Saturday morning on warrants charging him with murder and aggravated assault. A 16-year-old juvenile from Rome faces the same charges.
The warrants allege that Daniels and three other suspects went to Shannon on August 24th with the intention of fighting with someone who lives at 126 Baker Street, and the group of attackers kicked in the door and started shooting.
Police were sent to Baker Streetat around 10:30pm following the 9-1-1 call made by the 57 year old victim, Laura Regina Ross. Emergency dispatchers could only hear screaming and when officers arrived they found that Ross had been shot twice; first responders attempted life saving measures but Ross later died at Floyd Medical Center. Police do not believe Ross was the intended target of the home invasion.
Investigators spent all day Friday chasing leads and following up on information with those arrest warrants being signed after midnight; they were able to make arrests without incident early Saturday morning.
Additional arrests are reportedly expected soon.
