Gary Obrien, 31, was shot to death when three male subjects entered a residence located at 409 N. Simmons Street.

When Obrien refused to comply with a demand made by one of a group of males who were robbing the home he was shot, said Lt. Kevin Kirkum, LCPD spokesman.

Lake Charles men Devonta Deywane Orphey, 23, and Devin Jalmal Holefield, 25, were arrested Thursday afternoon in Waco, Texas, by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force. 

Kirkum said it is now believed that one of the first people arrested, Justin D. Landry, 20, was not involved in the crime. Kirkum said Landry was arrested after "the wrong information was given to investigators about his involvement with the homicide."

There have now been four arrests made in connection with Monday's homicide.
