A Fulton County Grand Jury indicted four people Tuesday, in an Atlanta home invasion where a father was shot twice, and his wife had to run from bullets while holding their infant daughter.

Brandon Smith was arrested five days after the August 16 crime on Sumter Street. He was indicted on 13 charges including aggravated assault, armed robbery and first degree home invasion.

Three juveniles were also indicted on the same charges. Arrest warrants were taken out for 15-year-old Trequan Sutton, 15-year-old Quindarius Slade, and 14-year-old Veshawn Smith. All teens will be charged as adults.

According to the indictment, the teens stole the gun they used in the shooting from Felix Smith, the day before the home invasion.
