GA: Armed Neighbor Shot and Killed, Four Teens Charges with Felony Murder

All four were indicted for felony murder in the death of Steven Boothe, said Brad Shealey, district attorney. The four were also indicted for possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony armed robbery, criminal attempt to commit a felony and aggravated assault, records show.

Tucker and Ramsey were 17 at the time of the incident, the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office said; Williams was 16 and Stallings was 15, but both will be tried as adults, Shealey said.

The killing took place June 13 at 4247 White Water Road in southern Lowndes County, Sheriff Ashley Paulk said in a previous interview. The county’s 911 center received a call regarding the incident at about 3:30 p.m., said Capt. Stryde Jones of the sheriff’s office.

During an apparent home invasion, a resident hid in a closet and phoned a neighbor, saying there was a robbery in progress, Paulk said. The neighbor, Boothe, came over with a pistol but was himself shot to death, Jones said.
