Three US teenagers have been arrested for allegedly murdering a man after they egged his house.
According to Fox News, Sydney Maughon and Jeremy Munson, both 18, and McKenzie Davenport, 19, were charged with malice murder, battery and criminal trespass on Monday.
The victim was later identified as Jonathan Gilbert. He also went by the name Tyler Lane.
Authorities say the accused were involved in a 'lovers' quarrel' with the victim before the incident took place.
"It appears there was an ongoing lovers' quarrel, and the suspects decided to go to Gilbert's residence on Dobbins Mill and vandalise it by egging it," the Spalding County Sheriff's Office explained in a statement posted on Facebook.
"When Gilbert saw what they were doing to his residence, he came out of the house unarmed, to confront them."
After Gilbert approached the suspects, Maughon allegedly shot him multiple times before the suspects fled the scene in a car.
When the police arrived on the scene they found Gilbert's body lying in the middle of the road.
Although Maughon was the one to pull the trigger, the Sheriff's Office said all three suspects would be charged.
"Because they all plotted and planned together, and travelled to the location with the intent to commit a crime that led up to the murder together, they are all just as culpable as if they had each pulled the trigger themselves," the press release explained.
"They went to egg a house, the victim confronted them while they were doing it, he lost his life, and they drove off and left his body in the middle of the road," the press release added.
"Together they bought that ticket; now together they can ride that ride."Featured Image Credit: Facebook/Spalding County Sheriff's Office. Kinga Krzeminska/Getty Images
