Two brothers were arrested over the weekend after allegedly shooting a man in an attempt to rob him at his residence Saturday.
Malcom Noel, 21, is charged with armed robbery and aggravated battery. His 18-year-old younger brother, Justice Noel, is charged with armed robbery. Rockdale County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Cpl. Michael Camp says that Malcom Noel is believed to be the shooter in this incident.
Around 2 a.m. that morning, RCSO received a call of a person shot at a residence in the 1700 block of Ga. Highway 212.
The 18-year-old victim was shot in the left-shoulder area after tussling with the suspects in the front yard of the house. He was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta to be treated for the injury.
The victim had known the suspects "for a while," says Camp, but it's not known if the suspects went to the victim's place of residence with the intent to rob him.
They made off with a small amount of cash.
Later that day around 3:30 p.m., RCSO obtained search and arrest warrants for the brothers, who both live at 702 Rockmont Circle in Conyers. Neither was home, but after the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit arrived, Malcom Noel arrived as well, where he was arrested.
Deputies found two handguns in the vehicle.
"We need more evidence to see if they are the same ones used in the shooting," said Camp.
Justice Noel was arrested an hour later at his place of employment, a local restaurant.
The Noel brothers are being held in the Rockdale County Jail. No bond has been set as of yet.
