Police announced an arrest a day after three men were shot to death in a Gwinnett County neighborhood.

Justice R. Lusk, 21, of Stone Mountain, was charged with three counts of felony murder, three counts of aggravated assault and three counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, said Gwinnett police spokeswoman Cpl. Michele Pihera.

Lusk was captured late Saturday night near the scene of the crime. He was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail on Sunday.

The victims were identified as Eugene McClam, 45, of Lawrenceville; Steven Finch, 33, of Arabi; and Robert Caverly, 64, of Lawrenceville. Both McClam and Caverly were residents of the home where the homicides took place.

The motive for the crime is still under investigation.

Officers responded to the Creek Water Court cul-de-sac near Steve Reynolds Boulevard just before 3:30 p.m. Saturday and found a man in the street with a gunshot wound, Pihera said. He was taken to the hospital and later died.

Officers found a nearby home with a garage door open and looked inside for additional victims. Police found the bodies of two more men who had been shot to death.
