The third and final suspect in the murder of eight-year-old Demarcus Hanson is in custody.

Tyjuan Anderson was arrested outside a house on 6th Avenue. He is the third man police have been looking for in connection to the death of an eight-year-old boy last April.

Twenty-one-year-old Anthony Ross, another suspect, was already in jail on an unrelated charge when first degree murder was added. Twenty-nine-year-old Lumont Johnson was arrested Sunday on the same charge

Police say the three men were targeting one of Demarcus' male relatives who sometimes stay at the home, but instead shot and killed the eight-year-old while he was in his bed.

All three men are being held on a $1 million bond and could face a minimum of 20 years in prison if convicted.
