Murder charges filed in Thanksgiving attack that killed 3

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Prosecutors have filed three murder counts and other charges against a man in connection with a drug-related robbery that left three men dead and two others wounded at a Fort Wayne home.

Allen County prosecutors also filed two counts of attempted murder and one of criminal recklessness Tuesday against 22-year-old Kameron Joyner. He previously had been charged with five counts of aggravated battery in the Thanksgiving Day atta ck that left 20-year-old Colton Messmer, 23-year-old Joevonn Johnson and 21-year-old Tracey Andrews dead.

Prosecutors say the wounded men told police that one of the deceased was selling marijuana from the house.

One survivor was hospitalized in Indianapolis in critical condition. The other was wounded in the back.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Joyner. Police are searching for another 22-year-old man.
