Fayette County deputies arrest third suspect in fatal home invasion

- Deputies have arrested a third suspect, who was at large, following a fatal home invasion in south Fayette County last week.

Travione Keonte Reynolds, 21, was taken into custody without incident at a residence in DeKalb County, according to police.

Investigators said they received a 911 call early Friday morning about a man who had been shot at a home on Lake Horton Landing Drive. 

Responding officers found a 74-year-old man suffering from a stab wound. Medics rushed him to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Shortly before noon Friday, SKYFOX 5 flew over the large home, which was surrounded by crime scene tape with a number of police officers on scene investigating.

The victim's wife told deputies she woke up after hearing noises and found three armed men standing over her husband.

Deputies later arrested two of the men, who reportedly stole the victim's car and crashed it. The third suspect was arrested on Thursday, June 29.

According to the Sheriff, one suspect called for a Lyft driver after the vehicle they stole crashed, and one of the suspects was already arrested. The Lyft driver came to the police checkpoint, and told Deputies about his call. The Sheriff and two deputies jumped into the Lyft driver's vehicle to arrest the second suspect.
