LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A fifth suspect connected to the January shooting death of a Lufkin man turned himself in to police following a KTRE report Thursday night, an LPD spokesman said.

Det. J.B. Smith said Jonathan Woodard, 19, turned himself in at the Lufkin Police station Friday morning on a charge of aggravated assault, following a KTRE report stating police had arrested Laricia Young, 23, of Lufkin, and Curtis Henderson, 45. Smith said Woodard contacted municipal court saying he heard there was a warrant for his arrest. He was then directed to the police station where he was arrested.

According to an arrest affidavit, Laricia Young, Narvlee Young and Kendall Thompson were assaulted by men at a residence on the 700 block of Cottonbelt Drive. They then retreated to a residence on the 700 block of Joyce Lane where they met up with Elton Gibson, Woodard and Curtis Henderson.

The affidavit states Narvlee Young, Henderson, Laricia Young and Woodard then drove back to the house on Cottonbelt Drive and slowed down. Narvlee Young opened the front passenger door and fired a shot from a 22-caliber pistol. They then left the scene and drove back to Joyce Lane.

A previous affidavit stated Kendall Thompson, 19, and Elton Gibson Jr., 19, both of Lufkin, and one other person drove by the same residence. One of them fired a shot that killed Joseph Cooper, 63, of Lufkin.

Laricia Young, Henderson and Woodard are charged with aggravated assault. Thompson and Gibson were charged with murder on May 6.

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.
