Two more teenagers have been charged for the home invasion shooting of a 57-year-old Shannon woman, according to a release from the Floyd County Police, whose investigation into the murder continues.
A 14-year-old male and a 16-year-old female from Rome are the most recent to be arrested. They have been charged with murder and aggravated assault in the death of Laura Regina Ross on August 24th at her Baker Street home.
Tyree Kozel Daniels, age 18 and of Cedartown, and a 16-year-old male from Rome were charged on Saturday with murder and aggravated assault. Daniels is now in the Floyd County Jail, and the teens are at a youth detention facility in Rome. Additional charges are expected against the suspects in custody.
The warrants by investigator Jordan Clayton allege that Daniels and the three suspects went to Shannon on August 24th with the intention of fighting with a person who lives at 126 Baker Street. These attackers kicked in the door and began shooting. Police were sent to Baker Street around 10:30 pm following a call to 911 for help from Ross. Dispatchers could only hear screaming, and officers discovered upon their arrival that Ross had been shot twice. The first responders attempted some life saving measures, but Ross later died at Floyd Medical Center. Police do not believe that she was the intended target of the home invasion.
