Michael De’Sean

A Georgia elementary teacher was arrested for the 2016 death of siblings in a gang-related incident.

Fox 2 News in Atlanta reports Michael De’Sean White along with several others were arrested in the deaths of 15-year-old Daveon Coates and his sister 11-year-old Tatiyana Coates.

In October of 2016, police received a 911 call from a child who reported shots fired after someone broke into their home. When cops arrived they found the Coates siblings dead inside their beds. Gang members were looking for another 15-year-old and mistook the Coates siblings as their target.

Police are still investigating the depth of White’s involvement with the gang. Clayton County Police Major Tina Daniel stated,” We are still investigating his gang affiliations, but he is clearly associated with the men who were there that night and we know the shooting was gang-related. We are still working some very strong leads and we are committed to bringing justice to those two innocent children.”

Since being arrested, White has been charged with malice murder.
