Two teens have been arrested on murder, aggravated assault charges in connection with the Aug. 24 shooting death of 57-year-old Laura Regina Ross, who was found dead in her Shannon home after calling 911 and hanging up. According to Floyd County Jail records and Sgt. Chris Fincher with Floyd County Police, Tyree Kozel Daniels (18) of Cedartown, Ga and a 16-year-old Rome juvenile have been charged with Felony Murder (non-family, gun) and Aggravated Assault. Although the jail report lists Daniels of a Lindale address, Fincher confirms he resided at Mulberry Lane in Cedartown, not Lindale.

Daniels remains at the Floyd County Jail on Saturday morning and the juvenile at the Floyd County Juvenile Detention Center after their arrests early Saturday. If the charges against the juvenile are upgraded to adult, his ID will be released at that time. Fincher says additional charges and arrests are pending in the case.

The warrants by Investigator Jordan Clayton allege Daniels and three suspects went to Shannon on August 24 with the intention of fighting with someone who lives at 126 Baker Street. The group of attackers kicked in the door and started shooting.

Police were sent to Baker Street around 10:30 p.m. following a 911 call for help by the 57-year-old victim Laura Regina Ross. Emergency dispatchers could only hear screaming and when officers arrived they found that Ross had been shot twice. Emergency responders attempted life saving measures but Ross later died at Floyd Medical Center.

Police do not believe Ross was the intended target of the home invasion.

Fincher says, “Investigators have worked tirelessly on the case and spent all day Friday chasing leads and following up on information. The arrest warrants were signed after midnight and investigators were able to make arrests without incident early Saturday morning. Additional arrests can be expected very soon.”
