GWINNETT COUNTY,GA- Three suspects are now in custody in connection with a weekend fatal shooting in Loganville, according to the Gwinnett county police department. Seventeen-year-old Joshua Cook was arrested Monday. Eighteen-year-old Corey Bryant and 17-year-old Terrance Thornton had already been arrested for the murder that police believe was drug-related. Cook is a college football prospect out of Arabia Mountain High School while Thornton played baseball at Chamblee Charter High.
“This is a deeply disturbing case involving four young men who were at the beginning of their adult lives,” said Cpl. Michele Pihera in a written statement. “On one side, you have a family grieving the loss of a 19-year old. And, at the other end are three families trying to understand how their teen could be involved in such a crime.”
Police say witnesses told them Madison was shot during a fight with other teenagers.
The homicide is drug-related, according to authorities.
