According to prosecutors, immediately after Louis was shot, the suspects were involved in a shootout with police outside a strip club.

Authorities say two officers were on routine patrol on Easter Sunday when they heard the gunshots coming from a parking lot area.

When the officers arrived at the scene, they encountered the group and determined they were involved in the shooting.

In the week following the incident, Felipe Cadet, Sharif Robinson, and Don Lafortune were arrested.

All four men are facing several weapons charges.

Robinson has been charged with first-degree murder.
