BATON ROUGE - Three more men have been arrested for their roles in a violent shootout Wednesday morning. Six people have now been arrested in connection with the crime.
The bloody gunfight happened on Ridge Pecan Dr. in the Gardere area. Cops picked up Avery Honea, Ivan Graham and Bryton Montelaro on Friday morning.
Avery is charged with principal to first degree murder and attempted first degree murder. Graham and Montelaro both face principal to first degree murder charges.
Investigators say Honea, Graham, Montelaro, Aaron Hargrove and DeMarcus James went to the apartment with the intention of stealing money and drugs from Christopher Vincent. They claim Honea and Graham stayed in the car, while James went inside.
