FULTON COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

The Fulton County district attorney announced the conviction of three people charged with murder after a 2015 home invasion in Fulton County.

Officials say 22-year-old Larry Ivory, 21-year-old Tony Rucker and 20-year-old Aaron Simmons forced their way in the Hagos Park apartment of Deontavious Wright in March 2015.

Wright was a "well-known drug dealer" in the complex, according to the district attorney.

The suspects were accused of stealing $400 from Wright, in addition to allegedly stealing drugs and cell phones from three other people in the apartment.

Simmons allegedly told Rucker to shoot Wright after the robbery, according to the district attorney. Wright had fatal gunshot wounds to his head and chest. 

The district attorney said all three suspects were identified by the three other people in the apartment, and were convicted by a jury of murder, felony murder, home invasion and participation in criminal street gang activity, along with gun charges.

They will be sentenced on Tuesday and Wednesday.
