Authorities suspect that an argument six weeks ago in an eastern New Orleans barroom led four men to a Harvey apartment early Monday morning, where they posed as police and fired a fusillade of bullets into the front door, injuring two women and three toddlers inside. Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand didn't give many other details about the motive for the shockingly violent shootings, other than to say that one of the persons involved in that argument six weeks ago may have had some "association" with the Lapalco Boulevard apartment.

Normand released the names of the four suspects arrested after a car chase that led police over the Crescent City Connection into New Orleans. Davante Robertson, 19, Charlie Gumms, 18, Frankie Hookfin Jr., 21, and Lashawn Davis 20, were taken into custody in Central City. Normand said they will face several charges, including attempted murder.

"Anytime someone shoots three kids under 3 and two adult females with an AK-47, that's about as damn significant as it gets in my view," the Jefferson Parish sheriff said. "These are cold-blooded killers."

Normand also said the suspects and the weapons recovered may be loosely tied to a series of murders, shootings and other crimes that detectives have been tracking in Jefferson Parish since 2012. In a news conference Monday afternoon, Normand provided additional details about the quintuple shooting and the Sheriff's Office's efforts to uncover any links among the parish's recent run of violent crimes.

An arrest at the school next door

The shootings occurred at The Lapalco Apartments, 2300 Lapalco Blvd., in Harvey, next door to Helen Cox High School. Several Sheriff's Office deputies happened to be at the school around 4 a.m., waiting to arrest Glen Houston, 20, a student wanted on charges of drug possession with the intent to distribute, aggravated assault on an officer, aggravated criminal damage to property, resisting an officer, reckless driving and flight from an officer using a motor vehicle, Normand said.
