The victims were identified as 38-year-old Christopher Brooks and 32-year-old Danielle Brooks. Christopher was shot multiple times in the head and in the body, People reported. Danielle, on the other hand, was covered with a lot of blood that it was not initially clear what injuries did she suffer from.

One person was first arrested and identified as Jaylyn Franklin, 20. He was reportedly an accomplice to the killings while the other two people arrested were identified as Lamarkuss Mann and Deanthony Harris.
Mann was the person who pulled the trigger. Franklin told authorities that the three men were dressed in all black and were driven by a fourth person to the area, who has not been arrested yet. They then went inside the apartment of the Brooks and asked for drugs and money.
Christopher reportedly begged the three men to take whatever they wanted while Danielle was screaming. The three men then told the boy to go inside his bedroom. Franklin, Christopher and Mann then started to wrestle for the gun and Mann eventually shot Brooks a number of times.
