Xzereus Dlamini, Mackayla Scarbrough and Connor Johnson.
Congratulations Mackayla [sic], you’re going to jail.
You bedded down with apes and now you’re covered in fleas – permanently.
Three people have been arrested in connection with the shooting of Odie Carrier.
Xzereus Dlamini, 19, Connor Johnson, 18, and 17-year-old Mackayla Scarbrough were booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail.
According to the jail website, Dlamini is facing a gun charge, and Johnson is facing drug dealing and gun charges. Police say those charges came after a traffic stop when the three were together.
On Tuesday, Dlamini and Johnson were additionally charged with murder after Carrier’s death. A preliminary plea of not guilty was entered for them in court Wednesday morning.
Originally, Scarbrough was charged with driving without a license, but a separate investigation into the shooting led to more charges. Scarbrough, who is being charged as an adult, is now charged with burglary and robbery with serious bodily injury.
Police say Carrier was found shot November 9 in the 3400 block of Wood Duck Drive. A neighbor saw the encounter and called 911.
Caller: “They knocked on this guy’s door, and they fired a gun. I don’t know if they shot him or not.” … Dispatcher: “How many kids?” … Caller: “Oh Lord there was a car full.” … Dispatcher: “What color kind of car was it?” … Caller: “It was a tan one. It was like a 4 door. I don’t know what kind of car it was, but it was a tan one.”
They say he had life threatening injuries. Police have not been able to talk with Carrier.
