Suspect charged in Thanksgiving Day shootings

November 26, 2018

The man arrested in connection with shootings that left three people dead and two injured on Thanksgiving is charged with five counts of aggravated battery. 

Kameron Joyner, 22, was charged today in Allen Superior Court. 

He was arrested Friday, and police have said they are looking for another man : Gerald Pinkston, 22. Investigators have not said whether either man fired the shots that killed Joevonn M. Johnson, 23, Colton D. Messmer, 20, and Tracey A. Andrews, 21. 

Two other people were injured and reportedly in critical condition, but they have not been identified. 

Police were called Thursday night to a home at 6116 block Downingtown Drive, where they found Johnson, Messmer and Andrews dead from gunshot wounds. Joyner was arrested the next day at a traffic stop.
