| by Amanda Andrade-Rhoades

Pablo A. Bermudez, John Michael Bush and Saveion Wylie Bush allegedly tried to break into an apartment in Peachtree Corners, Georgia, on May 11. The would-be victim, who has not been named, decided to fight back.

The victim saw the men on his back patio, “so he went back inside his apartment to arm himself with a firearm,” according to Lt. Michele Pihera.

John Michael Bush and Saveion Wylie Bush, who are related, have been charged with home invasion, aggravated assault and felony murder. The men were slapped with a felony murder charge because they were allegedly involved in a felony act when Bermudez died.

There may be more suspects at large, according to police. At the time of the shooting, a woman and an infant were in the apartment.
