3 arrested, 2 wanted in Gwinnett home invasion, shooting

Posted: Updated:

Gwinnett County officers responded to a home invasion in the 1000 block of Worchester Place, in unincorporated Lilburn around 2:45 a.m.

Police said two women and three men were involved in the home invasion.

Detectives believe the victims met the female suspects at a bar and invited them back to the home.

When the women arrived, three men also showed up. All five suspects participated in the robbery, according to police.

One of three victims was shot in the shoulder by a male robbery suspect, according to reports.

Another victim was able to escape through a window while the robbery was occurring. He called police from a neighbor's house.

When the suspects fled the scene they left in two cars, according to police. Two of the suspects took a victim's cars.

A DeKalb County officer stopped three of the suspects for a violation unrelated to the robbery and shooting.

After further investigation, DeKalb officers connected the suspects to the robbery that occurred in Gwinnett.

They were arrested, but two of the suspects are still on the run. The case is still an active investigation.
