Police arrest fourth homicide suspect
Fredrico C. Mikell
Statesboro Police investigators have four Waycross men in custody they say were involved in a shooting incident Saturday that left one dead and two injured.
    Waycross Police SWAT team members took Frederico C. Mikell, 30, Waycross, into custody Sunday, a fact Statesboro police did not disclose until Thursday morning. Police spokesmen told the Statesboro Herald Tuesday they were seeking two suspects in the shooting: Marcus Maurice Benbow, 39, and Bryan Lazarus Hughley, 34, both of Waycross.
    Thursday morning, police revealed Mikell's identity, as well as the identity of a suspect still at large at the time, Kendell Jerrell Worthy, 20, Waycross.
    Benbow was captured around 1 p.m. Wednesday after an anonymous tip to Waycross Police led to his location, where he was arrested by Blackshear Police, York said.
    Hughley turned himself in to Waycross Police around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, he said.
    Worthy was arrested Thursday morning, said Statesboro Police Capt. L. C. Williams.
      Information about Mikell and Worthy was not released before Thursday due to ongoing investigations and because charges had not been filed at the time,  he said.
    All four men are charged with murder, aggravated battery (two counts), armed robbery (six counts), and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime (two counts),  said Statesboro Police Chief Stan York.
    The men are suspected of opening fire at an Orange Street residence early Saturday morning, killing  Corey Oneil Walker, 21, and seriously injuring Chalandria McClouden, 30, and James L. Williams, 43, both of Statesboro.
