COLUMBUS — Columbus police have arrested two men in a Monday home invasion that left one person dead.

Police Lt. Selvain McQueen says 33-year-old Derrick Bankhead and 28-year-old Omar Beard were arrested Thursday and charged with the murder.

McQueen says both are charged for their roles in the shooting death of 35-year old Eddie Bankhead.

Police say two people, wearing bandanas over their faces, broke into a house and Bankhead was shot twice. He died Tuesday at Baptist Golden Triangle Hospital.

Bankhead and Beard was being held without bond in the local jail pending an initial court appearance.

McQueen says a third suspect was being sought in the ongoing investigation.
