Four suspects arrested in Paris homicde investigation

By  | 

PARIS, TX - Paris Police have made two more arrests in the case of a man shot and killed just yards from his home last week.

Authorities say 17-year old Treveonta Clark and a 16-year old boy were arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with capital murder, in the death of 28-year old Roland Williams.

21-year old Adrianandious Blackeyes and 18-year old Tyriekus Edwards were arrested Saturday and have also been charged with capital murder.

Detectives say they caught a break in the case when a concerned parent stepped up.

"The initial suspects were identified by a parent who overheard his two sons talking about it." said Paris Police Detective, James Mazy.

Police say the suspects tried to rob Williams early last Friday morning. Williams ran from the house, but the men chased him down and shot him.

After talking with all four suspects, Mazy says they believe they know the motive behind the attempted robbery.

"They've all pretty much given the same statement, is that he was supposed to have a lot of money and/or drugs." said Mazy.

Multiple suspects were believed to have been armed, but police believe there was only one shooter.

"At this time, we actually believe that only one suspect fired a gun." said Mazy. "We do know that one or more of them posed a gun during the beginning or end of the incident."

Three of the men are now in custody in the Lamar County Jail, while the 16-year old boy has been transferred to the Hunt County Juvenile Detention Center in Greenville.

Police are still investigating the murder, but believe no further arrests will be made.
