How can you not hang your heads in shame and embarrassment Black America at what our racial peers are doing? Many Blacks, because of their behavior, have EARNED the prejudice heaped upon them.
FITZGERALD, Ga. (TheBlaze/AP) — Authorities say seven Black people have been charged in the shooting death of a recent Black Georgia Lottery winner.
Ben Hill County Sheriff Bobby McLemore tells WFXL-TV the seven Black suspects, who range in age from 17 to 28 years old, all face charges of malice murder, aggravated assault, armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Rosalyn Swain, 22, Keyona Dyous, 24, Earnest Holcomb, 27, Wayan Jordan, 17, Dabrentis Overstreet, 19, Nathaniel Baker, 28, and Anjavell Johnson, 21 were all charged with malice murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of firearm during the commission of the crime, WALB-TV reported.
Jordan and Overstreet will be charged as adults.
Authorities say three masked Black men broke into 20-year-old Craigory Burch Jr.’s Fitzgerald home in January, demanded money and then fatally shot Burch.
The attack came two months after Burch won $434,272 from hitting the Fantasy 5 jackpot.
McLemore says he expects there to be more arrests of Blacks in connection with the attack, which investigators believe was targeted, and not random.
