Three men face charges in the death of a man found shot inside his home Saturday morning, authorities say.
Brent Carey, 28, and Claude Simpson, 33, both of Calhoun, Ga., have been charged with murder and armed robbery, Sheriff Mitch Ralston said in a news release.
Both men were arrested after 42-year-old Jason Hammond was found dead in his home off Union Grove Church Road.
Authorities say Hammond’s death was drug related and not a random robbery.
Police have now found a third suspect, Deunta Curtis, 22. He surrendered to authorities after the Chattanooga police and U.S. Marshalls barricaded a house Monday night.
