Authorities got a call about a shooting on Smith Street in Oxford around 10:45 a.m. and discovered 23-year-old Antonio Devaras Swink with a gunshot wound to the chest, Calhoun County Assistant Coroner Jay Bowden said by phone Sunday.
“We received the call from the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office around 11:25 a.m. and pronounced him dead at Northeast Regional Medical Center at 11:45 a.m.,” Bowden said.
Investigators arrested and charged Meghan Ann Jones, 25, and Deanthony Reginald Miller, 21, both Eastaboga residents, as well as 22-year-old Albert Lawrence Edison from Dearmanville with murder, Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade wrote in a news release Monday morning.
Swink was sent to Huntsville for an autopsy, Bowden said Sunday.
Neither Jones, Miller, nor Edison had a court date scheduled or bond set Monday morning.
