NEWNAN, Ga. A crime spree that spanned four days and left six people dead has rocked a south metro Atlanta community.

Nicholas Martez Nelson, 38, has been arrested and charged with four counts of murder in connection to the killing spree
, but authorities said there could be more charges coming as they work to put the pieces to the violence together.

It all happened within a 25-mile radius and was over in a matter of days. Police don't believe there is still a threat to the public, but said it would take prayers to heal.
The Crime: Timeline of events
Thursday, Nov. 5

It all began around 2:40 p.m. on Nov. 5, when Newnan Police officers got called to Steeple Chase Drive after a reported burglary in progress.

The 911 call reported that a man had forced his way inside the home while people were present and stole firearms and jewelry before leaving. No one inside the home was harmed.

But just hours later, minutes before 8 p.m., police got another call to respond to East Broad Street after getting a call for shots fired with a "person down."

When officers got there, they found two people who had been shot multiple times - one person with a faint pulse laying in the driveway; another was on the back deck. Both victims - later identified as William Edward Bussie III, 39, and Kevin Duane Robbins, 43, both residents of the home - were pronounced dead there.

Investigators recovered evidence, including shell casings, from the scene.

Police got a call just before 5:30 p.m. to the Eastgate Apartments off Dowdell Street.

According to witnesses on scene, a man in a silver Ford Crown Victoria pulled up in a parking lot and fired shots at a man before driving off.

First responders took the victim, Warner Mandrel Parks, 39, to the hospital with a faint pulse, but he, too, later died.
