BRUNSWICK, Ga. (WSAV) – Two Glynn County teens have been charged in the murder of a 35-year-old man.

Glynn County Police on Tuesday morning found Antonio Randolph dead from a gunshot wound in the yard of 3605 Emanuel Avenue.

According to the department, on Wednesday Ethan and Everett Bennett, 17 and 18 years of age, were arrested on unrelated charges. They have since each been charged with one count of murder.

There was initially some question as to whether a report of shots fired made in the area that night was related to Randolph’s death. Police now say it is believed that’s when he was killed.

The Bennetts are both suspected gang members, according to Glynn County Police. Investigators expect additional charges against them and possibly others.

“It is because of the dedication of the Glynn County Police investigators, who have worked almost non-stop, that this case was solved as quickly as it was,” said Police Chief John Powell in a statement.

Anyone with information on the incident is still urged to come forward. Call the Glynn County Police Investigations Division at 912-554-7802 or the Silent Witness line at 912-264-1333.
