Jefferson Parish sheriff’s detectives have arrested a fifth suspect in the Terrytown shooting death of a Louisiana Army National Guard member.

They booked Gerald Little, 18, on Thursday with first-degree murder in the killing of Jemond Cador, 21.

Little’s alleged co-conspirators include Myron Lee, Matthew Smith, Isaiah White, all 20, and Kewane Edwards, 21. They were booked in December with the same charge.

Cador was shot and killed Dec. 6 inside his apartment in the 200 block of Wright Avenue. Deputies were dispatched to the residence for a report of gunfire at the apartment complex, noticed the door to Cador’s unit was kicked in and found him wounded inside. He was taken to the hospital where he was declared dead.

The Sheriff’s Office has not disclosed a motive or evidence linking the suspects to the crime.

Little and the other suspects were being held without bond Friday.
