A Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's deputy is credited with spotting a suspect wanted in connection with a triple murder and shooting in Lake Charles Wednesday.
Lake Charles Police say the deputy spotted Hadnot in the 1400 Block of St. John Street. When the deputy turned around to pursue him, police say Hadnot had wrecked his vehicle into a parked vehicle in the 1600 block of Geiffers. The suspect then allegedly fled the scene on foot.
Lake Charles Police notified the public through an automated messaging system to be alert and contact police if needed.
A short time later, police say an officer of the K-9 division spotted Hadnot on North 1st Avenue and began to chase him on foot. Police say when Hadnot noticed the K-9, he surrendered.
