(SL) – Authorities in Clayton County are looking for the coldblooded killers who invaded a home in Jonesboro and killed two children. A 15-year-old boy, Daveon Coates, and his 11-year-old sister, Tatiana Coates, were killed Saturday morning while their parents were out.
It’s believed that two families were living in the home and other children between the ages of 6 and 15 were home alone when the incident took place. The mom of the two children killed was trying to help out another family and allowed them to live with her. A teenager in that family reportedly was the 15-year old the killers were looking for.
