MADISON COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) -- Investigators with the Madison Police Department and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement have arrested three suspects after a home invasion robbery left another suspect dead on Wednesday.

FDLE says two of the suspects, Keosha Lewis, 20, and Selena Murray, 18, are charged with armed burglary. Charges of felony murder and armed burglary are pending against a third suspect, Jeremiah Davis, 21.

Authorities say on Wednesday morning, four suspects entered a home on Mandina Avenue occupied by a male and female victim. The suspects tied-up the woman and beat the man. Police say Davis was armed with a gun and threatened the victims. The male victim was able to retrieve his firearm and shoot the suspects, killing one and injuring another.

Lewis and Murray were not injured, fled the home and were arrested a few hours later. A bystander drove suspect Jamescya Pringle, 19, to Madison County Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced deceased on arrival. Davis, who was shot in the leg, was later located and transported to the hospital.

FDLE says Lewis and Murray were booked into the Madison County Jail. Davis remains hospitalized and is expected to make a full recovery. The male victim is recovering from his injuries, while the female victim was not injured.

Officials say the investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be filed.

Authorities took questions from the media at a press conference held Thursday afternoon:

Police said this case is out of the ordinary for Madison.

"The things going through our minds are going to vary. One of the first things is probably few and beyond that we get things like this and we're going to do the best job that we can to apprehend and keep our small streets and city safe," said Madison Police Chief Reggie Alexander.

MADISON COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) -- The Madison Police Department and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement are currently investigating a shooting that left one person dead.

The Madison County Sheriff's Office says the shooting happened Wednesday at a residence on Mandina Avenue.

According to FDLE, a woman was found shot to death in a vehicle that was parked and left abandoned at the Madison County Memorial Hospital this morning.

A short time later, investigators located a man with a gunshot wound. He is being treated at the hospital for a non-life-threatening injury. FDLE says the incidents appear to be related.

As a precautionary measure, a lockdown was initiated in the immediate area surrounding the hospital. That lockdown has since been lifted. The Sheriff's Office emphasized that there was no active shooter and that the lockdown was a precautionary measure during the early stages of the investigation.

No arrests have been made at this time. FDLE says they are looking for two people who may have been involved in shooting, but no description or vehicle description is available at this point.

Authorities have not released any details on a possible motive.
