NEW ORLEANS — Two more suspects were arrested in connection with a violent home invasion in Tangipahoa parish. The incident ended with a 12-year-old girl in the hospital and her father dead, police said.

Parish deputies announced the arrests of 18-year-old Avery Guidry and 19-year-old Tra'von Johnson.

Investigators believe they were part of a group that broke into a home in Hammond on September 13th, shot and killed Donte Perry, and shot his 12-year-old daughter at least 10 times.

Omarion Hookfin - and now Guidry and Johnson - face charges including kidnapping, attempted murder and first degree murder.
