CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

The second of three murder suspects was brought to the Crisp County jail Thursday afternoon.

Zankee Newsome was brought in from Florida where he was arrested on Monday for the murder of 19-year old Carnell Saintville.

Arianna Hughes was already in custody at the Crisp County Law Enforcement Center and police are still searching for a third suspect in the case.

"Still have a lot of information, a lot of details that need [to] be flushed out, a lot of follow up interviews. We're still looking at different suspects as possibly being involved so there's still a lot of that activity that needs to happen before we're anywhere close to being finished," said Detective Andrew Roufs of the Cordele Police Department.

Saintville was shot early Sunday morning in the 1100 block of South 15th Street and then brought to Crisp Regional Hospital where he passed away. 

Officials believe a possible motive could have been that Saintville owed the suspects money.

Cordele Police would like anyone who has information about the shooting to call the Police Department at (229) 276-2921.
