Eighteen-year-olds Kelsey Nicole Kirk and Nicholas Lawrence Zeman, as well as 17-year-old Jacob Todd Zimmerman, bring the total number of arrests in the case to 24.
Kirk, Zeman and Zimmerman join 21 other teens who face charges, many of whom are students at the school. The teens face charges in the wake of an early Sunday incident that saw the words “Senior” and “2012” spray-painted across the school’s campus—including the guard shack, two county vehicles and the roadway—and the subdivision across the street.
Previously arrested were 17-year-olds Avery Tyler Brown, Courtney Reede Grant, Hunter Harry Ledbetter, Brandon Lee Owensby, William Patrick, Courtney Lynn Turner and Zachariah Jame Zazverskey. Under Georgia law, the justice system treats all 17-year-olds as adults.
Eighteen-year-olds previously arrested were Olamide Ayobele Akinbohun, Jamie Raquel Bowder, Christian Armani Browder, Deanna Marie Dane, Michael Chance Kornegay, Walter Lewis III, Reginald Liss, Harold Gene Nowden, Jovanca Briana Pazmino, Joshua Alexendria Pete, Andres Bryce Forn Suttles and Madison Nicole Wood. Also arrested were 19-year-olds Jeremy Rogers and Devantae Alexander Terrell.
PCSO Cpl. Ashley Henson said that though the investigation continues, the latest three arrests are expected to be the final arrests to be announced in the immediate future, but added that the department was not ruling out the possibility of additional arrests.
