• Police: Robbers targeted home where teen slain

    Updated:

    NORCROSS, Ga. - The home break-in that ended in the fatal shooting of a Norcross teen was targeted to the home, but the teen was not the intended victim, according to police.

    Fifteen-year-old Nicholas Jackson was shot and killed on Feb. 2 in his Autry Street home. Police now believe the six suspects knew exactly where they were heading that night.

    Investigators said on Wednesday that the motive for the break-in was robbery, and that the robbers specifically targeted the home.

    Norcross police told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh that the crime was not random, but would not specify who the intended victim was.

    Police also noted that most random robbers do not carry weapons. Inside the van the men were driving, police said they found several guns, ski masks, bandanas and an undisclosed amount of money.

    Six people -- Anthony Lumpkin, 32, Rico West, 19, Eddie Lewis Green, 46, Jason Dozier, 36, Michael Davis, 23, and Timothy Lamar Johnson, 34 -- have been arrested on felony burglary and murder charges. The men are expected to appear in court on Friday for their preliminary hearing.

    Nick's funeral is scheduled for Saturday.
