SCALF, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police have arrested four people in a fatal home invasion in southeastern Kentucky and say more arrests are pending.

Police say Donald Mills was fatally shot on May 9 after two men falsely claiming to be police officers forced their way into his Knox County home. Police say Mills was shot when he began struggling with one of the men.

Media outlets report that two people, 30-year-old Elijah Messer and 39-year-old Angela Mills, were arrested Saturday and charged with murder. On Friday, officers charged 36-year-old Patrick B. Baker and 36-year-old Christopher Bradley Wagner with murder.

All of the suspects are being held at the Knox County Detention Center, where online records don't indicate whether they have attorneys.

Police say that they don't think Mills' home was randomly targeted.
