(UPDATE) CONYERS- The final suspect in a drug-related home invasion has been caught by law enforcement.

Norcross resident Mike McTiller, 27, was arrested by Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office (RCSO) and U.S. Marshalls on Jun*e 15 around 3 p.m. at an apartment complex in Norcross, Georgia without incident.

McTiller, one of two suspects in this case, was wanted in connection to a home invasion that occurred May 11 in the 300 block of Ga. Highway 20. He is suspected of stabbing the homeowner in the abdomen.

The other suspect, 22-year-old Kevin Howard, was arrested more than a month ago at the same apartment complex as McTiller.

“We believe that they had some friends in the complex,” said RCSO Cpl. Michael Camp.

 McTiller is being charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He is currently in Rockdale County Jail with no bond set as of Monday morning.   


(May 20, 6:21 p.m.) Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office deputies have arrested one of the suspects believed to be involved in the drug-related robbery that occurred last week. 

Kevin Howard, a 22-year-old Conyers resident, was arrested by the RCSO and members of the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force Tuesday, May 19, for the May 11 incident that left one victim with a gunshot and stab wound.

RCSO Cpl. Michael Camp says Howard is believed to be the shooter in this case while the other suspect is believed to have stabbed the 21-year-old Hispanic victim. 

Marshals tracked Howard to one of his friend’s apartment located in Norcross, Georgia in Gwinnett County. He was arrested at the apartment with no weapons in his possession, according to Camp. 

Howard was transported to Rockdale County Jail. He is being charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. 

Investigators are still trying to determine the identity and whereabouts of the other suspect in this case. 


(May 11, 5:07 p.m) The Rockdale County Sheriff's Office (RCSO) has classified this incident as a drug-related robbery, says RCSO spokesperson Cpl. Michael Camp.

According to Camp, the 21-year-old hispanic victim, led the two unknown suspects into his home. A fight, presumbaly over the suspects attempting to rob the vicitim  of his drugs, ensued and the victim was shot in the hand. 

After being shot, he was still battling the suspect, until the other suspect stab him in the adomial area, according to Camp. 

The two suspects, who were described broadly to invesitgators as black males with dreadlock-styled hair, ran from the man's residence with a "small amount of cash."


(May 11, 2:59 p.m.) The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office (RCSO) is investigating a possible home invasion that left one person severely injured this morning. 

The victim in this case was shot and stabbed, according to the RCSO, but not much else is known as of yet. The victim was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta to be treated for his injuries. He was in “stable condition” and his injuries don’t “appear to be life threatening.”

RCSO investigators are waiting for an opportunity to speak more with the victim.

Around 6 a.m., RCSO deputies responded to a person shot call in the 300 block of Ga. Highway 20. The victim, who was bleeding heavily, made his way to a neighbor’s house for assistance after the incident, according to the RCSO. How many times he was shot and stabbed is still unknown. 

At this point, all the victim told deputies was that two black males broke into his house, says RCSO spokesperson Cpl. Michael Camp. 

“It sounds like a home invasion robbery, but we won’t know until we talk to him,” he said.
