TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - An 17-year-old has been arrested on attempted murder and home invasion charges in an incident at a Tallahassee apartment complex that ended with two victims being shot.

Kalvontay Huggins, 17, of Monticello was arrested on March 9, the same day as his two other defendants, Angelica Shantrell Colson, 19, and De'Aundre Parker, 19.

He had his first court appearance Thursday after being transferred from a juvenile detention facility to the Leon County Jail, to be tried as an adult on two counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of home invasion robbery with a firearm.

The judge granted him $25,000 bond on each of the charges, ordered him to be GPS monitored, and ordered Huggins not to have contact with the victims.

A fourth suspect has also been charged but has not been taken into custody yet. 

On March 3, 2018, at the Villa San Marco Apartments, according to court documents, three men the victims did not know entered their apartment and announced a robbery.

The men instructed the two victims to turn over their valuables, including money, cellphones, electronics and jewelry.

Leaving the apartment, one of the men turned and fired a single shot that struck both victims. 

Investigators tracked one of the stolen cellphones to a Monticello residence and seized it from a woman who said her brother may have brought it there.

After obtaining a search warrant, law enforcement found on the seized phone information about where to obtain marijuana in Villa San Marco Apartments.

A fourth suspect has also been charged but has not been taken into custody yet.
