LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Lake Charles Police have released details in the arrest of Armonta Dquon Hadnot, a suspect in the triple homicide Wednesday night at McMillan Park.

The victims were identified as 20-year old Jeminskian J. Arvie; 23-year-old David Jermaine Galmore; and 20-year-old Fitzgerald Tremayne Guillory, all of Lake Charles.

According to authorities, Hadnot was arrested Thursday night in the 1400 Block of St. John Street after Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Deputy C. Soileau spotted the vehicle that was listed in a nationwide data base.

Authorities said after seeing the suspect vehicle on Shattuck Street, the deputy attempted to turn around when the suspect turned west onto Gieffers Street.

Authorities said by the time the deputy caught up to the driver, he had wrecked his vehicle into a parked vehicle in the 1600 block of Geiffers.

The suspect then fled the scene on foot, authorities said.

Authorities said Lake Charles Police notified the public by what is called a 911 ring down which calls homes within a certain area.

The message was brief, but described what was happening in their neighborhood and to be alert and contact police, if needed.

A short time later, Cpl. Michael Treadway of the Lake Charles Police Department's K-9 division spotted Hadnot walking south on North 1st Avenue and a foot pursuit began.

Treadway and his K-9 partner, Barry, chased Hadnot and when Hadnot saw the K-9, authorities said he surrendered without incident, authorities said.

Hadnot was booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center on warrants for the following charges:

Three counts of first-degree murder, no bond

Three counts of attempted first-degree murder, $200,000 on each count

Six counts of armed robbery, $50,000 on each count

Six counts of armed robbery with a firearm, $75,000 on each count

Lead detectives are Sgt. Frank Fondel, Sgt. Lecia McCullough and Detective Colby Thompson.

Two others, who have not been identified by authorities, are also sought in the case.

    Through this afternoon expect continued pop-up showers thanks to southerly flow providing ample moisture. Hot and humid conditions will persist across Southwest Louisiana for those of us not seeing a cooling shower.  Overnight warm and humid conditions persist with lows only dropping into the upper 70s.
