Early in the murder investigation, BPD say they identified Christian Myers as one of the suspects. Detectives obtained warrants for his arrest for Principal to First Degree Murder, Principal to Assault by Drive by Shooting, and Principal to Illegal Use of Weapons. He was entered into N.C.I.C., a national database of wanted persons.
On November 1, 2022, Myers was involved in an altercation in Scarborough, Maine. Police were called to a business due to a disturbance, and Myers was identified. Police ran his name through N.C.I.C. and Myers was arrested by Scarborough Police as a Fugitive from Bogalusa and BPD was notified. Myers will be brought back to Louisiana following extradition proceedings.
BPD further reports that it is believed at least two other suspects were with Myers when Allen was shot. Results of forensic evidence is pending, and may reveal the identity of the other suspects.
