NEW ROADS, LA (WAFB) -

Investigators said they arrested four more people believed to have helped a man suspected in a double murder, who is also accused of killing a deputy US marshal, after the shooting that left a brother and sister dead.

The Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff's Office announced the arrests of Theresa Turner, 23, of Baton Rouge; Latonia Duncan, 37, of Baton Rouge; Michelle Farris, 41, of Ventress; and Kelvin Duncan, 39, of Baton Rouge. They are all charged with principal to first-degree murder.

They are all suspected of assisting Jamie Croom, 31, of New Roads, when he was wanted in connection with the shooting deaths of Sinica and Lechelle Williams. Authorities said Latonia Duncan and Michelle Farris are two of Croom's sisters.

The shooting happened in the parking lot of the Sugar Shack Bar on Mandela Lane in New Roads on February 18.

Five other people were arrested in March in connection with the murders. Two of the five are believed to have been at the club when the shooting occurred.

The Baton Rouge Police Department said Jamie Croom killed Deputy US Marshal Josie Wells, 27, of Mississippi, during a shootout Tuesday morning at the Elm Grove Motel in the Scotlandville-area.

A task force made up of law enforcement from the Baton Rouge-area and the US Marshals Service went to the Elm Grove Motel to arrest Croom for his involvement in the shooting at the Sugar Shack.

Deputy US Marshal Josie Wells was shot in the neck and was rushed to the hospital where he later died.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's Office reported Croom died early the next morning at a Baton Rouge hospital. He was shot multiple times during the incident.

Shane Evans, an investigator with the coroner's office, said Croom was pronounced dead at 12:40 a.m.
