— Halifax County authorities have arrested the fourth suspect in a drug-related home invasion in which two other suspects were shot.

Rodney Lee Miles Jr., 21, of Gaston, was charged Wednesday in connection with the Dec. 22 home invasion in which Ricardo Harley, 20, died.

Authorities say that several armed men burst into a Littleton home at night, and the resident fired back, killing Harley and wounding Kayman Northington, 41. Harley was wearing body armor.

Miles, Northington, Rynel Tyreek Gaines, 24, and Deunta Quamae Squire, 22, have all been charged with first-degree burglary and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. They were each given separate $200,000 bonds and scheduled to appear in court Feb. 1.

Investigators said the resident was protecting himself and will not be charged.

    Kyaman Northington, how did the homeowner miss your massive nugget?

    All of them should have no bond. Life is not a game and some family no longer have a loved one because of you guys. You seem to be watching to much tv!!!! Maybe your parents should turn off the cable and perhaps you guys will grow up!!!!!

    It's too bad that the home owner couldn't have taken them all out. The one's that he missed will probably be back around to rob him again before long.

    Nah...NOT is this liberal justice state....you know not.

    Yet again, I'm disturbed at the lack of respect for human life. What makes these young adults think that they can just rob and kill people? Have any of them ever heard of getting a job and earning a living? Maybe they will read the Bible while they are incarcerated. They could stand to learn something about right and wrong to say the least. Body armor aint the answer, obviously.

    "..arrested the fourth suspect in a drug-related home invasion.."
    "Investigators said the resident was protecting himself and will not be charged."

    If its drug related, the homeowner can't be innocent.

    This is how they learned to spell in NC and what they think are names from the African heritige a country most of them have never visited and may have never bothered reading about. but even worst nobody bothered teaching this young men right from wrong. Now the people of NC are charged with that job and mom and dad might get to visit them
