TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Three people have been arrested in connection with a shooting earlier this month during a home invasion in Tuscaloosa.

The Tuscaloosa News (http://bit.ly/2jrytXk ) reports that a 27-year-old man was shot on the night of Jan. 2 after armed men ran into his apartment’s bedroom and demanded money. The victim told police that 20-year-old Weslie Tinker fired at him, striking him in the chest, before fleeing.

Tinker and 20-year-old DeJaun Furr were arrested Tuesday. Twenty-one-year-old Ladarius Stewart was arrested Wednesday, after investigators released his photo and asked for the public’s help to locate him. All three have been charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary. It is unclear whether any of them have attorneys.
