2 West Bank men convicted of murder, armed robbery in 2015 crime spree

Two West Bank men were found guilty Friday night (Sept. 8) of a slew of charges, including murder and armed robbery, in connection with a late 2015 crime spree that killed one man and left another partially paralyzed and wheelchair-bound for life, according to the Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s Office.

After about two hours of deliberation, a Jefferson Parish jury unanimously convicted 25-year-old Corey Flag of Gretna and 18-year-old Emmett Garrison IV of Marrero of all charges listed in their 10-count bill of indictment.

Both men were convicted of second-degree murder in the Nov. 23, 2015 fatal shooting of Bruce Lutcher Sr., 34. The jury found that the two men killed Lutcher while robbing him outside of his apartment in the 1600 block of Ute Drive in Harvey. According to previous Times-Picayune interviews with family members, Lutcher was gunned down while trying to protect his young son and family from the robbers.

Capital murder charges filed against 2 teens in crime spree partially livestreamed on Facebook

Two teens are now charged with capital murder in the June shooting death of a young Birmingham father killed when he was hit by bullets meant for someone else.

Demarcus Daniels, 17, and X’Zavier McWillie, 16, were formally charged in the slaying of 20-year-old Antonio Brooks on Aug. 17. The pair has been jailed on $600,000 bond each since June 30 when police say they opened fire while driving that Friday night, killing Brooks, shooting into another vehicle and then ramming a Birmingham police cruiser, seriously injuring two officers.

Within days, the teens – one of whom streamed the crash live on Facebook – were charged with attempted murder and discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle. The capital murder charges didn’t come until late last week.

Birmingham police officials said they had been interviewing witnesses and waiting on ballistics testing before obtaining the capital murder warrants. 

Both now are being held
