      Man arrested in violent Lake City home invasion

      Deatric Hall, 20, is charged with two counts of Attempted Murder, Burglary and Grand Larceny in a home invasion on Smith Street in a Lake City last month, according to Lake City Police Chief Jody Cooper.

      Cooper said Hall was linked to the crime through DNA evidence.

      "There is evidence to believe that the Hall subject did not act alone. This investigation is still ongoing. More arrests and charges are expected on this case," according to chief Cooper.

      Police accuse Hall of forcing his way into a home, shooting a 75-year-old man and stabbing the man's son.

      The 75-year-old's wife was bedridden and could do nothing to help.

      Police hope Hall's arrest will bring relief to the Lake City community, as many resident were concerned due to the violent nature of the home invasion.

      Hall is being held at the Florence County Sheriff's Office.
