The panel indicted Tre’Veon Demarcus Anderson, 26, Glenn Montreal Frierson, 38, and Lawrence Guydell Pierre II, 21, on a charge of second-degree murder.

Additionally, the men are charged with conspiracy to commit second-degree murder. All are being held on bonds of $1 million each.

Shreveport Police Chief Ben Raymond announced their arrests back in mid-January.

Police say, Anderson, who was Payne's boyfriend, was the triggerman. Authorities say Pierre, Anderson's cousin, witnessed the shooting and implicated Anderson in the shooting. He allegedly admitted hiding the murder weapon, a .40-caliber handgun.

Anderson and Payne lived together and had a 2-year-old daughter.

Around 8:30 p.m. on January 9, authorities responded to a shooting at the 1600 block of Midway Avenue in Shreveport’s Caddo Heights neighborhood. At the scene, Officer Payne was found shot four times, including once in the head. She was then taken to a local hospital, but she succumbed to her injuries and passed away.

Shreveport Police said she has not on duty at the time of the incident and was heading in to start her shift.
