Shooting ruled justified, no charges expected

An 18-year-old was killed and three others, including a 15-year-old, were injured Friday in a shooting after they attempted to break into a DeKalb County home, police said.

Officers were called to the 2700 block of Gresham Road shortly after 5 p.m. and found Jacqueze Grier, 23, Taneaious McCune, 18, and the 15-year-old boy shot outside a home, according to police. They were taken to a hospital with serious injuries, and at least one was in critical condition.

McCune died at the hospital. Another man, identified as 30-year-old Telvin Thomas, arrived at the hospital with a gunshot wound and was then linked to the incident, police said.

“Our initial investigation indicates this was a targeted incident and not a random act,” police said. “The four subjects arrived at the incident location and attempted a home invasion.”

During the attempted home invasion, police said there was an exchange of gunfire with a man who lives at the home with four other family members.

“This shooting appears justified and no charges are expected to be filed against any of the residents,” police said.

The three remaining suspects are in custody and are expected to be charged with felony murder, police said. Thomas and Grier will also be charged with home invasion.
