Two siblings have been arrested in the shooting death of a 7-year-old girl, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office said Monday.

Antoine Allen, 21, and Keadesia Allen, 23, were arrested Monday and face charges of felony murder and aggravated assault. They were booked into the DeKalb County Jail.

Mariasia Thomas was struck in the head by a bullet on April 12 at her foster parent’s home in Ellenwood. She died 10 days later.

“This senseless shooting was solved by the great work of our law enforcement partners and the DeKalb County Police homicide and gang units,” said Joseph “Jack” Lumpkin, the county’s chief of public safety.
