Investigators believe Robert Erik Bell had an assault rifle and was waiting for Angelina Benton, 34, Benton’s 12-year-old son, Joseph McDonald, her 19-year-old godson, Raynard Daniel, and her boyfriend, Justin Cato, to return to Benton’s Anderson-Livsey Road home after a weekend trip on Sept. 15. Benton had recently opened up her home to Bell, according to police.
The boy and teen were shot moments after walking through the door of the home, Cpl. Deon Washington with Gwinnett County police previously said. Benton didn't make it inside the home and collapsed in a neighbor's yard after being shot four times, police said. Cato was shot in the leg and survived his injuries.
