Two men charged with murder that followed DeKalb home invasion


Two men have been arrested for a fatal shooting that followed a home invasion in DeKalb County.

Marcus Wilder, 23, was killed Saturday morning when he came upon intruders as he entered his home in the East Perimeter Pointe Apartments in the 4900 block of Treecrest Pkwy., Major Steve Fore said.

Wilder’s roommate, also 23, had been attacked and robbed by three armed men several hours before, at about 4:30 a.m. during an invasion of the apartment, and he was treated for a laceration at DeKalb Medical, Fore said.

When Wilder came home about 8:30 a.m., he apparently walked in on intruders and was shot, Fore said. He died at the scene.

Jeffery Price, 23, and Quenterius Brown, 22, were charged with murder
