3 Cobb men charged in fatal shootings


Three men from Cobb County have been charged in connection with the shooting deaths of two people in LaGrange, police said.

Jarvis D. Duncan, 35, and Michael Lee Fair, 37, both of Marietta, were charged with murder and other felonies, LaGrange police said in a Facebook post. Marietta and Cobb County police assisted in their arrests.

Two other men, Gerald Jerome Florence, 34, of Powder Springs, and Lewis Antonio Shells, 35, of LaGrange, also were charged with murder in connection with the incident, police said. Shells has been arrested, and Florence is at large.

The victims were found early Saturday in a home in the 100 block of Edgewood Avenue, police said. One victim was identified as Darius Tucker, and the other victim has not been identified.

Three or four masked people dressed in black forced their way into the home and confronted the victims, police said. The victims were shot before the intruders ran from the home.

Anyone with information is asked to contact 911, LaGrange police or Troup County Crime Stoppers at 706-812-1000. Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information in this case.
