LAPLACE – The three suspects identified as “persons of interest” in Saturday’s homicide in Garyville, who were wanted on other outstanding warrants in St. John the Baptist Parish, have turned themselves in to authorities, according to a spokesman.

Craig Lee Jr., 23, Cyron Lee, 22, and Devonte Johnson, 18, surrendered to deputies at the Sherman Walker Correctional Facility in LaPlace at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, said Capt. Dane Clement, spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office.

Each were wanted on four counts of attempted second-degree murder, illegal use of a firearm and aggravated criminal damage to property. Cyron Lee was wanted on weapons and drug charges in connection with the first homicide investigation.

All three men are being held at the jail. Craig Lee’s bond has been set at $520,000, Johnson’s bond has been set at $455,000 and Cyron Lee’s bond has been set at $35,000.
