GRANTVILLE, Georgia — A 21-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a fatal armed robbery at a shooting range in Georgia last week that killed three family members.
College Park’s Jacob Christian Muse is charged with three counts of malicious murder, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said in a news release Friday.
When Grantville officers arrived at the scene of the Lock Stock & Barrel Shooting Range on the night of April 8, they discovered the bodies of the shooting range owner, along with his wife and grandson. The victims were identified as Thomas Hawk, 75; Evelyn Hawk, 75; and Luke Hawk, 17.
Investigators said up to 40 guns and the shooting range surveillance camera were also stolen.
The shooting range is located in rural Coweta County, about 80 kilometers southwest of Atlanta.
Police Chief Steve Whitlock said the Hawk family is known and respected in their small, close-knit community. The Hawks had operated Lock Stock & Barrel for nearly 30 years. Her grandson was on spring break helping his grandparents in the shop.
Muse was committed to the Coweta County Jail, officials said. Authorities did not release any further information about his arrest, and it was not immediately clear if Muse had an attorney who could comment.
