Police have arrested two men charged in the murder of a Boyle County woman, shot and killed at her apartment on Longview Drive around 3:30 Wednesday afternoon.

Melissa Luna-White's boyfriend held his head in his hands at the murder scene. Moments before that, his girlfriend was shot, right in front of him. She died at the hospital.

"I don't know it's terrifying," says the person who lives across the street. "I never seen nothing like that before."

The neighbor says he saw the whole thing happen. He says under the circumstances, he doesn't feel safe telling us his name or showing his face.

"She shoved him out the door and that's when they shoved him in the bush and they started fighting."

Late Wednesday night, police arrested 27 year-old Lamar Stallworth, charging him with murder and burglary. Twenty-three year-old David Harlan is also behind bars, charged with helping Stallworth.

The neighbor tells us he saw two men park in front of the apartment and one forced his way in. He says 29 year old Luna-White kicked the man out, her boyfriend tried to keep him out, but the shooter got back inside. That's when the person across the street says he heard shots.

"We kind of got back in the kitchen and stood there, then we come back to the door and try to see what was happening. They just pulled out and left," says the man.

You may recognize the name of this shooting victim. Melissa Jean Luna-White was one of three people charged in a Thanksgiving day murder, also in Boyle County. Luna-White, along with Gina Priest and Jordan White, are accused in the death of Michael Begley Jr., whose body was found on the side of Taylor Road. Police say Begley was still alive when he was left there, but died as a result of being choked.

DANVILLE, Ky.(WKYT)- We're gathering new details in a shooting that's now become a murder.

Police have confirmed that a woman shot in a Danville home Wednesday afternoon has died.

The shooting happened in an apartment on Longview Drive just after 3 p.m.

The victim has been identified as 29-year-old Mellisa Luna-White.

Police also told us they have arrested two suspects in the case.

Danville police say 27-year-old Lamar Stallworth has been charged with murder, burglary, and wanton endangerment while 23-year-old David Harlan faces complicity charges.

Witnesses say the whole thing started as a fight between three men on the porch of an apartment on Longview Road.

Moments later shots were fired into the screen door.

Some witnesses say they heard as many as four gunshots.

"He said he happened to hear some noise and he came to the door and there were two guys and then something about they shot a gun," said witness Ladonna Ball.

Police say they've only recovered one casing.

At this time they say the motive is unclear

Two Danville men were arrested late Wednesday night on murder charges after a woman was shot to death just inside the front door to her South Danville apartment.

Melissa Jean Luna-White, 29, was shot about 3 p.m. in the doorway of her residence at 528 Longview Drive and died in flight while being airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington, Danville Police Chief Tony Gray said.

After searching for two suspects for more than seven hours, Danville officers took Lamar M. Stallworth and David J. Harlan into custody without incident about 10:30 p.m. at a residence on McIntyre Circle, Gray said.

Stallworth, 27, was charged with murder, first-degree burglary and wanton endangerment, and Harlan, 23, was charged with complicity in those alleged crimes. Both men are being held without bond in the Boyle County Detention Center.

Luna-White was indicted for tampering with evidence in the death of Michael Begley Jr. 27, of Richmond, whose body was found alongside Taylor Road, strangled to death, in November.

Her husband, Jordan Montez White, 25, of 418 Adams St., Danville, is charged with reckless homicide in Begley’s death, and her sister, Gina Priest, is also charged with tampering with evidence in the case. White and Priest are awaiting trial in Boyle Circuit Court. White has been in the Boyle County Detention Center under a $10,000 bond since he was charged.

“We are not ready to make any connections to that case or with any other motive at this point,” Gray said Wednesday night.“We are still very early in the investigation.”

Gray said it was not immediately clear how many shots were fired or how many times Luna-White was struck. Witnesses reported hearing from two to five gunshots, but only one shell casing, from a semi-automatic pistol, had been recovered as of Wednesday night, Gray said.

Three witnesses who asked not to be identified for fear of reprisal said they saw the shooting unfold from their home.

According to the witnesses, two men got out of a small silver car with large, shiny hubcaps, approached the apartment and engaged in a conversation with a man inside. The two men then got back in their car and left, but returned within five minutes.

The two men approached the apartment a second time and got in to a physical altercation with the man on the front steps, the witnesses said. Luna-White appeared at the door and appeared to be trying to drag the man inside when one of the intruders pulled a pistol, turned it sideways, gangster style, and shot into the doorway, firing off four or five rounds, the witnesses said.

“It was kind of freaky seeing it happen right outside your window in the middle of the day,” one of the witnesses said.

Gray declined to comment on the witnesses’s account of the shooting other than to acknowledge there had been a fight at the front door that resulted in gunshots.

Gray said the man inside the apartment with Luna-White, who said he was her boyfriend, was not struck by any bullets and it was not immediately clear if he was the intended target of the gunfire. The man has not been charged and Gray declined to release his name.

I honestly cannot believe you would disrespect my sister and our family like that. I am gay and my wife is black, so if i was killed right now u would say that's what I get? You need to have a little respect for our sister and our family. We are devastated right now! You need to get right with God and your prejudice ass because if something happened to you you wouldn't be in heaven when my beautiful sister is.

So she is married to the guy that is in jail for murder...which she was also involved in. Why was she not in jail too? Next, she's married but had a BF on the side? And who is he exactly? Third, the girl wasn't white. Maybe partially but in her mug shot she looked mixed.

Karma is all there is to say. Maybe if she never help kill that young man she may still be here. Or if she was still in jail for her part in the murder she would of been in that apartment.

My sister was indian and white, so don't tell me what she is or isn't. Who she is married to and who she is screwing really doesn't matter--what does that have to do with her being killed? Every single one of you are going to hell for not respecting us. Regardless of mistakes, that is our blood and we love her. Now we must suffer without her with us. How the hell would u feel?

Check this out.... You people have nothing better to do than to pick with our family during this time of sorrow and pain? I am going to heaven, I think you need to find a way to get out of hell. Yep, I'm gay and my bit** is black. God knows my heart. So whoever has something negative to say during this time keep it to your selves. For real. Get a life and stay out of ours. You did not know my sister so who are you to speak on her?

Thank you for trying to help ignorant people to see that all of this only hurts us more. It doesn't matter what someone has done in the past, or if they commit adultery, etc. She still did not deserve to be taken from us like that. People speak on her when they do not know her. Only God can judge..........
