LAKELAND, GA (WALB) - Police in Lakeland are looking for a couple of killers after a home invasion murder.

44 year-old Norris Miller was playing a game of poker with friends at a home on Talley Avenue just after 1:00 Monday morning.

Police say two masked men kicked in the door and demanded money.

The robbers stole $220 then shot Miller with a 380 caliber pistol. 

"We have one black male who had a gunshot wound to the arm. It went through the arm and into the chest. EMS was called and he was transported to South Georgia Medical Center where he later passed away," says Lakeland Police Chief Robbie Grantham.

Police say they don't know why the killers shot Miller but it's an unusal situation for the small city.  "This is rare.  I know we've had two this year but it's very rare."

Investigators say they have several leads, but none are very solid.

They're asking anyone with information to call the Lakeland Police Department.  That number is 229-482-3309.
