LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - Lake Charles police say they’ve arrested a 16-year-old and three adults for a shooting that killed one man and wounded three others.

Lt. Richard Harrell says bonds for the adults range from $225,000 to $1 million.

Three arrests were made April 6, the day 22-year-old Cody Lastrapes was killed. A news release Wednesday said 25-year-old Andre Jordan Broussard was arrested Tuesday and his bond was set at $900,000. Bond was set at $225,000 for Deon Tobia Demoruelle and at $1 million for Jkristopher Demond Scott. Both are 19.

Harrell says Demoruelle faces charges of illegal use of weapons and obstruction of justice, and the other two men of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.

Calcasieu Parish District Attorney John DeRosier says the juvenile will be tried as an adult.
