Deputies with the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office arrived at a home on Mobile Drive in Artesia on Tuesday, and they found the three victims who were later identified as 31-year-old Demario Anquan Snell, 22-year-old Mauricio Lamarcus Nance and 24-year-old Tyshun Bernard Fields.
All three were found suffering from gunshot wounds and were pronounced dead at the scene. An investigation was launched, and police have now charged Clark Earl Allen Jr. with Capital Murder.
