Armstrong was booked on the charge of murder and attempted murder.

On December 12, just before 9 p.m., deputies responded to an apartment on Myrtle Avenue for reported gunshots.

Four victims were found inside the apartment with gunshot wounds. The victims were 38-year-old Sungaya Fleming, a 39-year-old woman, a 21-year-old man and a 15-year-old girl.

Fleming later died from her injuries. The three other victims are recovering.

The suspect(s) allegedly fired multiple shots through the closed front door of the apartment. Detectives believe a physical fight occurred between Johnson and someone else in the apartment earlier that day.

There were 16 people in the apartment at the time of the shooting, including five children.
