Below is a timeline of Tuesday's double murder-

3:14 p.m.

Police responded to a call about a stabbing and shooting. Police found three injured people, all of whom were hospitalized.

One was later released, another remains in stable condition at the hospital and a third, Joshua Dominic Frank, 27, was rushed to a Lafayette hospital, where he died of his injuries.

After the Cherry Street attack, police say Felton Watson fled to the 2000 block of Clarinda Street, where he took a motorist's GMC Envoy, pistol-whipped him, and then sped off to the Howard Johnson Express motel on Broad Street.

The victim was treated and later released.

 


5:42 p.m. – 8:20 p.m.

 

After failing to convince a barricaded Watson to leave the motel on his own, authorities sent in an armored "Bearcat" assault vehicle that slung tear gas at that area of the facility. Watson walked out of the room and surrendered to SWAT team officers.

 


 

8:20 p.m. – later that night

Under questioning at police headquarters, Watson began convulsing and having seizures and eventually told police he had eaten a large quantity of narcotics.

He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where he's listed in critical condition.

Deputy Chief T.J. Bell contacted the Louisiana State Police and informed them about the suspect's seizures while in the LCPD's custody.

 


 

Result:

Watson is being charged with first-degree murder, three counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of carjacking. Judge David Ritchie issued a 2.5 million dollar bond on Watson.

Sgt. Lecia McCullough is the lead investigator in these cases and is being assisted by Detectives Franklin Fondel and Colby Thompson.
