LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – More arrests have been made in a deadly drive-by shooting.

Thursday evening, Lufkin police arrested two people, who fired the first round of gunshots around 1:30 a.m. on Jan. 19 on Cotton Belt Street.

The second round of shots was fired just minutes later, by a separate vehicle, killing 63-year-old Joseph Cooper.

Police say Thursday's arrests are not directly linked to Cooper's murder.

Laricia Young, 23 and 45-year-old Curtis Henderson, are both charged with aggravated assault, a second degree felony.

Police say both suspects willingly surrendered, although Henderson was hiding in his closet when police arrived.

Narvlee Young, 24, has also been served a warrant. She is in the Beaumont area, for other terms of probation, but police say she plans to turn herself in.

Police are looking for a fourth suspect, 19-year-old Jonathan Woodard. He may be living in the Rusk area. If you have any information on his whereabouts, contact the Lufkin police department or call Crime Stoppers at 639-TIPS. Remember, you can remain anonymous.

How these four are connected to the second vehicle-- the one that fired the fatal shots, is still being investigated.
