Gwinnett County police arrested three men in connection with the deadly shooting of Malik Werts at an apartment complex on Ashley Lakes Drive in Peachtree Corners last month.
Officers were dispatched shortly after noon on Jan. 31 to a call about a man who had been shot inside one of the apartment buildings.
On Friday, police arrested two brothers from Duluth, 18-year-old Cobe Myart and 20-year-old Corey Myart, as well as 19-year-old Gabriel Morales from Lawrenceville.
All three men are charged with aggravated assault, felony murder and home invasion in the first degree.
Cpl. Collin Flynn said detectives believe the homicide was motivated by drug activity and robbery. They also believe that the victim’s apartment was specifically targeted by the three suspects.
