Six people are facing criminal charges related to a deadly shooting that broke out at a Baton Rouge apartment complex pool on Memorial Day. That shooting left three people dead: a toddler, a teenager and one adult.

Arrest records said three male suspects entered the pool area of the Fairway View apartments May 31, and a confrontation took place that led to the deadly gunfire.

Three people were arrested Tuesday, a little more than a week after the killings happened. The first arrests were that of a 15-year-old and two adults.

Another two suspects were arrested Thursday, two brothers ages 19 and 15. Arrest records suggest the brothers fired gunshots that killed at least two of the three victims. 

Law enforcement officials are still looking for one more suspect, who remains unidentified.

There are six facing charges in total:

Darrell Edwards (15)
-Charged with principal to first-degree murder (3 counts), illegal use of a weapon

Christopher Stovall (23)
-Charged with principal to first-degree murder (3 counts) and illegal use of a weapon
-Allegedly fired gun during confrontation at pool

Latoya Coleman (36)
-Charged with accessory after the fact to first-degree murder (2 counts)
-Accused of driving her two sons, both suspected in the shooting, to Texas to avoid law enforcement

David Williams (19)
-Charged with first-degree murder (3 counts) and illegal use of a weapon
-Son of Latoya Coleman
-Allegedly shot one of the victims

LeDarrius Coleman (15)
