Two Mich. Murder Suspects Arrested
Dec. 11, 1998
ERIE, Pa. (AP) _ Two suspects in the killing of a Detroit police officer surrendered Friday after spending much of the day in a second-floor apartment surrounded by about 60 FBI agents and police officers.
Montez Moore, 26, and James Langford, both 24, are suspects in the fatal shooting of Officer Shawn Bandy, who was killed Dec. 5 in Detroit, about 220 miles away.
Moore and Langford, the son of a retired Detroit police officer, had been alone for nearly eight hours in the building on a block that had mostly been evacuated. Police communicated with the pair by phone.
Bandy and Officer James Lloyd were shot in the face during a chase that followed a report that a kidnapped woman might be in a white van. The officers were hit during a police pursuit by gunfire from the passing van.
In arrest warrants, Langford and Moore were accused of first-degree murder, assault, armed robbery, extortion and kidnapping. If convicted as charged, each faces mandatory life imprisonment.
Three others have been charged in the shootings.
