Teen Son Arrested in Ga. Deputy Shooting

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (Map, News) – A 17-year-old boy was arrested Friday and charged with fatally shooting his mother, who was a sheriff’s deputy, and his two small sisters, authorities said.

Anthony Tyrone Terrell Jr. was charged with murder in the deaths at the family home near Lawrenceville, where the bodies were found late Thursday, said police spokeswoman Illana Spellman.

She identified the victims as Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Deputy Joy Deleston, 39, and her two daughters, Micaiah, 11, and Jelani, 4. The motive was still unclear.

Terrell was taken to jail in neighboring DeKalb County to avoid any potential conflict because Deleston worked for Gwinnett County, Spellman said. He is being held without bail.
