Police say Ned is wanted on charges of being a principle to first-degree murder, 3 counts of armed robbery, and 3 counts of armed robbery with a firearm.
Gary Obrien, 31, was shot to death when three male subjects entered a residence located at 409 N. Simmons Street, said Lt. Kevin Kirkum, LCPD spokesman.

All three then fled on foot.
