Three Louisiana murder suspects fled to Killeen and were captured by the city's SWAT team Tuesday.

Killeen police's Special Weapons and Tactics team cornered and arrested three men inside a mobile home at Stonegate Mobile Home Park at 101 Elms Road at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, a department news release stated.

Louisiana state and local law enforcement tracked the three suspects to Killeen where Mario Dejuan Oliver, 27, Brandon Maurice Holmes, 27, and Shawn Allen, 21, were arrested without incident.

"It's been a long, long weekend," Donnell Rose, Tallulah, La., police chief, said. "They've been on the run until luckily we tied them down yesterday."

The men are suspects in the shooting death of a 16-year-old boy on a residential street in Tallulah at 4:30 a.m. Sunday, Rose said.

The shooting happened after a disturbance at a club spilled into the neighborhood, Rose said. The boy died after being shot in the leg and in the back, near the lower spine.

Tallulah is in northeastern Louisiana, about 30 miles west of Monroe.

The suspects were in the Killeen City Jail Wednesday afternoon awaiting extradition to Madison Parish, a Killeen police news release stated.

State and local investigators were en route via helicopter to Killeen to extradite the suspects back to Tallulah, Rose said.
