Three suspects in a homicide at an RV park on Broad Street Saturday morning have been arrested, according to the Lake Charles Police Department.
LCPD responded to a 911 call in reference to an armed robbery and shooting at the Twelve Palms RV Park around 6 a.m. Saturday, July 22.
Responding Officers located a male subject, later identified as Joshua Touchet, 24 years old, residing in Lake Charles, with what appeared to be a gunshot wound, and requested EMS, said LCPD spokesman Sgt. Jeffrey Keenum.
Touchet was transported to Lake Charles Memorial Hospital where he would later succumb to his injuries, said Keenum.
Responding officers were provided physical descriptions of suspects and began searching the area. While searching the area, PFC Jonathan Landrum located two subjects matching the suspect descriptions and asked the subjects to accompany him to detectives.
Detectives interviewed the subjects and identified them as Desmond Kemon Orphey, 20 years old, from Lake Charles, and a 14-year-old male subject, also residing in Lake Charles, said Keenum.
Detectives later identified the third suspect as Johnnie Paul Hardman Jr., 28 years old, from Lake Charles.
