BATON ROUGE — The three men involved in a standoff with police Wednesday are now facing first-degree murder charges.
Mark Shorter, 25, Javan Shorter, 22, and Terry Barnes, 21, are accused of shooting and killing Antonio Johnson April 3. Johnson was gunned down on Harelson St. and had multiple gunshot wounds.
On Wednesday, police surrounded the Woodspring Suites Extended-Stay Hotel on North Harrells Ferry Rd. after a tip from the U.S. Marshal’s Office suggested that two of the suspects were staying at the hotel.
Police say that the two suspects and a third person refused to come out of one of the hotel rooms. The Baton Rouge Police Department and the NAACP negotiated with the men, and all three surrendered without incident.
