Gwinnett County police have identified three people who were killed in a shooting in an area listed as unincorporated Lawrenceville, off Pleasant Hill Road on Saturday, and also arrested a suspect in the case.

Police responded to a call about a person being shot on Creek Water Court, near the intersection with Brookcrest Street, at about 3:30 p.m. Officers arrived to find multiple deceased victims. The victims were identified on Sunday as Lawrenceville area residents Eugene McClam, 45, and Robert Caverly, 64, and Arabi resident Steven Finch, 33.

One male was found in a cul-de-sac and was transported to a local hospital, where he later died. Two other males were found dead in a nearby home. Police did not specify where each victim was found, but they said McClam and Caverly lived at the home where the shooting occurred.
