5 arrested in Memorial Day shooting that killed toddler, two others



Five people were arrested this week in connection to a Memorial Day shooting that left three dead, including a toddler, outside of a Louisiana apartment complex, a report said.

The suspects include two brothers — 19-year-old David Williams and LeDarrius Coleman, 15 — and their mother Latoya Coleman, who is accused of driving them to Texas to flee police after the fatal shooting, WBRZ reported.

The siblings are among the suspected triggermen in the shooting at the Fairway View Apartments pool and lounge area in Baton Rouge, the report said.

Police said the shooting erupted following a fight between the suspects and two males — a teen and a man, both of whom were killed.

The gunfire also fatally struck 18-month-old Ja’tyri “JT” Brown.

Charges against the brothers were pending Thursday. Their mother is charged with accessory after the fact to first-degree murder, the report said.

Two other suspects, 15-year-old Darrell Edwards and Christopher Stovall, have each been charged with three counts of murder.
