Police arrest woman in fatal break-in

Police have arrested a Paris woman who they say was involved in a break-in at an apartment complex near Hamburg Wednesday during which a resident shot and killed one of the alleged intruders.

Teshayla Marie Clark, 30, of Paris was charged with first-degree complicity to commit burglary, according to Fayette District Court records.

She remained in the Fayette County Detention Center Saturday night under a $10,000 bond, jail officials said.

According to police, Brian Simpson, 28, was shot and killed after he, Clark and Reginald Laron Jones charged into an apartment on Polo Club Boulevard.

Jones, 24, was arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with first-degree burglary.

According to police, the couple who live in the apartment answered knocks at the door and were "rushed" by three people with handguns. One of the residents got a handgun and shot Simpson, police said.

No information about any possible relationship between the intruders and the residents has been released. Police have not said why the three people were at the home.

Police have not charged the shooter. Investigators have said the case might be considered self-defense.
