Lake Charles Police are looking for a man they are saying is a person of interest in three murders overnight, as well as a suspect in an aggravated assault on Highway 171.
The police chief described 18-year-old Armonta Dquon Hadnot as possibly the most dangerous man in the country at a press conference this afternoon.
Wednesday night, around 7:45 pm, Lake Charles police say they responded to a call of shots fired at 2027 Highway 171. Police say as the victim exited the business, the suspect was trying to park his 2001 Buick Century in the parking spot the victim was walking through. Words were exchanged between the suspect and victim; then the victim entered his own vehicle that had two occupants already inside.
Police say as the suspects were driving away, Hadnot leaned outside the vehicle's passenger side window, shooting at the victims several times.
The driver of the vehicle Hadnot was allegedly shooting from was identified as Lon Allen Porter. This morning, Porter was charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Hadnot is also wanted in connection with three murders that happened hours after the first incident on Highway 171. Just after 10:00, police say Hadnot and an unknown second suspect ordered numerous individuals to the ground at gun point in McMillan Park in Lake Charles. This is where 20-year old Jeminskian J. Arvie, 23-year old David Jermaine Galmore, and 20-year old Fitzgerald Tremayne Guillory (all of Lake Charles) were shot and killed.
Hadnot could possible be driving a 2001 Buick Century, dark green, with dark tinted windows - Texas license plate BK6J808. The Buick Century has a hood ornament of an angel with orange wings swept back toward the windshield.
Hadnot is also wanted on criminal charges from a shooting that occurred in September 2012. The 2012 charges are Attempted 2nd Degree Murder and Illegal use of weapons or dangerous instrumentalities.
Hadnot and occupants of this vehicle should be considered armed and dangerous. If the vehicle is located, contact your local law enforcement agency.
