Tucker was pronounced dead. The second victim, Tucker’s mother, age 49, was flown to a Columbus hospital and is listed in stable condition. The initial investigation revealed that three to four masked suspects dressed in black clothing forced their way into the home and confronted the victims.
Duncan and Fair are also being held in connection with a home invasion and armed robbery on Friday in LaGrange. Florence and Shells are also suspects in the incident in which two LaGrange men were held at gunpoint and robbed at a Saynor Circle house.
The investigation of that robbery revealed that the Saynor Circle home was targeted by the suspects due to their believing that the location contained a large quantity of illegal drugs and money.
