City police said they have captured one of the men wanted in connection with Wednesday’s triple homicide at McMillan Park.
Deputy Chief Mark Kraus said 18-year-old Armonta Dquon Hadnot, of Lake Charles, was taken into custody after midnight. Two other unidentified people are also being sought in the murders.
Kraus said more details will be released sometime on Friday.
Police found the dark green 2001 Buick Century linked to the shooting at around 10 p.m. Thursday.
A Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy saw the vehicle on the road in the vicinity of Gieffers and Shattuck streets at 9:50 p.m..
As the officer turned his vehicle around, the Buick turned onto Gieffers Street, where Hadnot crashed into a yard before fleeing, Kraus said.
