Georgia lottery winner murdered during home invasion

FITZGERALD, Ga. - A recent winner of the Georgia Lottery was killed during a home invasion overnight on Thursday, reports CBS affiliate WRBL.

20-year-old Craigory Burch, Jr. won more than $400,000 in November 2015. Authorities from Ben Hill County say Burch died from gunshot wounds.

Burch's girlfriend told local TV station WALB that Burch pleaded with three masked men before they shot and killed him.

"When they came in, he said, 'don't do it bro. Don't do it in front of my kids. Please don't do it in front of my kids and old lady. Please don't do that bro. Please don't," Jasmine Hendricks told the station.

Police have not identified suspects in the case.
