Police arrest one suspect, the other dead in Memphis break-in

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Police in Memphis have arrested a man they say is the second suspect in a fatal home invasion.

Nineteen-year-old Quintone Holmes was charged yesterday. The other suspect, 22-year-old Christopher Hawkins, was killed after he and another man forced their way into a north side home earlier yesterday.

Holmes is charged with one drug count; one count of especially aggravated kidnapping; and two counts of aggravated robbery.

Police say one of the two robbery victims managed to get control of a robber's gun and fatally shoot Hawkins.
