UPDATE: The man wanted on a murder charge for the March 1st shooting in New Iberia last week has been arrested in New Iberia. The US Marshal's Violent Offender Task Force says they arrested Akeam Masheeq Daniels in Houston, Texas.

What began with a 3:00 a.m. Amber Alert case has evolved into the hunt for three men, one of whom is wanted for 2nd degree murder in connection to a shooting that happened in New Iberia last night.

Last night someone shot 29-year-old Courtland Hall of New Iberia to death.

Also last night, State Police issued an Amber Alert for Amari Daniels, the two-month old daughter of Akeam Daniels. The little girl was safely dropped off with family this morning.

Daniels is now being sought for the shooting death of Hall. Two other men, who police want to talk to in connection with the shooting, are also being sought by police.

Deputies say Akeam Daniels, Isaiah Johnson and Avan Francisco are said to now be traveling in a brown Honda Accord.

The white Cadillac that they were said to be in previously was found abandoned out on Neco Town Road.

Detectives are asking anyone who comes into contact with these men to know that they are considered armed and dangerous and to call 911.
