Arrests made in connection to man shot in head in Conyers home in May

The Rockdale County Sheriff's Department 28-year-old Mikle Talyzin has been arrested in connection to this case. 19year-old Ryan Mulqueen was arrested previously. Both arrests were made by the New York Police Department. 


A man has been hospitalized after a brazen shooting in Conyers Saturday. Police say they are looking for a pair of men who may know something about it. 

Police say the shooting happened at a home on Fountain Crest Drive at around 2:30 p.m. That's where officials found a 45-year-old victim inside with three gunshot wounds to the head. They say he was unconscious and barely breathing.

Investigators were on scene for hours Saturday afternoon. Deputies say the victim let two men into the home where there was some sort of argument before shots were fired.

"He was on the phone with a family member and they kind of heard an argument," Deputy Darnesia Adams from the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office told FOX 5. "He just knew something was wrong, and then he gave us a call."

Deputies believe the man who was shot owned the home. His neighbors told FOX 5 he hadn't lived there very long. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
