ACWORTH, Ga. — Police say a man broke into a home where a teenager was killed during a Cobb County home invasion days after the murder and stole his things.
Channel 2′s Cobb County Bureau Chief Michele Newell was in Acworth Thursday, where 19-year-old Aiden Shaw was gunned down last week.
Police have identified two suspects they say are responsible. Jaiden Colon, 21, is being held in jail on murder charges. Police are still searching for 18-year-old David Travis.
Now, a third person has been arrested in connection to the case, Easton Perkins.
After Shaw was killed, police removed his front door, which was pierced with bullet holes, and removed it as evidence. They then boarded the door up.
“All of our neighbors are spooked. It’s going to take a while to get back to normal,” a neighbor told Channel 2 Action News.
But police said Perkins ripped the boards off and broke into Shaw’s apartment, stealing some of his property.
Perkins was charged with burglary.
According to the warrant, Perkins removed every screw from the boarded-up front door, then stole things from Shaw’s apartment.
Channel 2 Action News was on the scene when the area was originally boarded up.
Detectives saw bullet holes in the victim’s front door and removed it to use as evidence.
