LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Limestone County Sheriff's Department said all four suspects involved in an armed home invasion are now in custody.

According to Sheriff Mike Blakely, three men and two women were playing pool inside a house on Segers Road when two men, one them armed with a gun, entered the house. The man with the gun hit one of the victims over the head with the weapon.

Investigators said the two women at the home were in on the plan.

The sheriff said that when the offenders tried to restrain the victims, one of the victims beat the offender without the gun with a pool stick. The other offender fled the residence seeking help.

"These guys made the mistake of bringing a gun to a pool stick fight," said Sheriff Blakely.

According to the sheriff, the homeowner was able to get his gun and held one of the offenders at gunpoint while they waited for deputies to arrive.

Two of the victims were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. One of the offenders, Wendell Hyter Jr., was arrested and charged with burglary and attempted robbery.

Helicopters and dogs were used to search for the offender with the gun.

Late Thursday afternoon, the Sheriff's department confirmed they had arrested the second offender, Lamar Detrick Jones, as well as the two female accomplices, Krissy Quta Kendall and Auburn Renee Michelle Moore.
