A fourth suspect was arrested Monday in connection with a home invasion that left a man dead on Halloween, DeKalb County authorities announced.

Kevin Brooks is accused of fatally shooting Armando DeShazer during an armed robbery and home invasion in the 1900 block of Columbia Drive, Decatur, on Oct. 31.

Brooks was taken into custody by the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Squad at the intersection of Memorial Drive and Clay Street after authorities followed him from an apartment on Montgomery Street, a news release said.

The DeKalb deputies were assisted by Atlanta police and the U.S. Marshal's Special Task Force.

Three other suspects in the case already had been arrested, police said.

Corey Deshawn Thomas and a 16-year-old juvenile were captured by the fugitive squad Nov. 3 and charged with murder and armed robbery. Pippa Hall-Jackson was arrested by Atlanta police on Nov. 12 and faces the same charges.

The four suspects are in the DeKalb County Jail.
