Two men accused of home invasion are also booked with second-degree murder because the home's resident shot and killed their alleged accomplice.

Alexandria police tell The Town Talk that 19-year-old Marlon Chaney and 20-year-old Warren O'Connor face the charge because they were attempting armed robbery when 24-year-old Darwin Johnson was
killed early Monday.

Resident Roy Harris Jr., also shot O'Conner, who was booked after hospital treatment.

Police say the three allegedly broke in while Harris, his wife and children slept.

The Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office has not yet released the name of a man shot during another alleged home invasion Monday.

Investigators say both residents were within rights under Louisiana's justifiable homicide law.
