MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - An arrest is made in the death of a Hispanic man April 25th in Colquitt County.  

The Colquitt County Sheriff's Office has charged 26-year-old Eric Lamar with murder. Lamar was already in the Colquitt County Jail, arrested nearly a week ago by Moultrie City Police on outstanding warrants for aggravated assault.

Neighbors told investigators a truck came speeding up to the house on Sardis Church Road, turned its lights out, then shots were heard.

When sheriff's investigators arrived they found Bernardino Perez shot to death. Investigators say they're still looking into three home invasions that followed the murder that night.
