Carrollton Police believe two female University of West Georgia students and a male from Fulton County played roles in the shooting death of 23-year old Tyler Ford at his Lovvorn Road apartment last Wednesday.
 
18-year old Seniya Asford-Conner,  student at University of West Georgia and resident of Tyus Hall on Campus, charged with Murder.
19-year old Arpege Jackson, student at University of West Georgia and resident of University Suites on Campus, charged with Murder.
18-year old male Shadeed Dunson, resident of Fulton County, Atlanta, charged with Murder. (Previous stories listed Dunston as female. The gender has been corrected in our report)
 
CPD Captain Shannon Cantrell told WLBB Radio Saturday morning that investigators believe the suspects may be connected to a pair of armed robberies on Wednesday, the second resulting in Ford's death.
 
Wednesday afternoon, Carrollton Police and UWG Police responded to a reported shooting at the River Pointe Apartment complex on Lovvorn Road. They found the victim lying on the floor near his doorway.
 
He was reportedly shot a single time after he answered a knock at the door. Three of Ford’s room-mates were also in the apartment at the time of the shooting, each in their own rooms. They report hearing a commotion at the door and then a gunshot.


"Through the investigation it was believed that two robberies occurred that day with in minutes of each other.  The first robbery was of a student in the parking lot of Campus Walk Apartments on Foster Street which was drug related.  The second robbery was committed at River Pointe which was also drug related and resulted in the death of Ford," Cantrell said. "It is believed that Jackson used to be a girlfriend of Ford.  Parties were charged with murder and booked at Carroll County Jail.  Other charges are pending which will include armed robbery and weapons charges."
 
Cantrell says all incidents are still under investigation.
