DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- Police say a brother and sister were responsible for firing bullets that killed a 7-year-old girl.
Several bullets went through the door and windows, and at least one of them struck Thomas. She died 10 days later from her injuries.
On Monday, May 13, DeKalb County Police said two siblings had been arrested in the case.
Antoine Allen, 21, and his sister, Keadesia Allen, 23, are charged with felony murder and aggravated assault. They are being held at DeKalb County Jail. A judge denied them bond.
“This senseless shooting was solved by the great work of our law enforcement partners and the DeKalb County Police homicide and gang units,” said DeKalb County Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Public Safety Joseph “Jack” Lumpkin.
Police had offered a reward of at least $10,000 for information in the case.
The pair are set to make their next court appearance at 1 p.m., May 29.
