The incident took place in the 9400 block of Night Harbor Drive. Police have arrested 19-year-old Devin Antone. Though not responsible for Walker’s death, Antone — who arrived at the home with Walker — was charged with intent to kill or inflict serious injury and first degree kidnapping.

According to LPD, officers arrived at scene at approximately 3:49 a.m. on July 31 in reference to a person suffering from a gunshot wound.
