Sheriff’s Office Still Looking for Third Man

Over the weekend, Prince Edward County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call in the 5000 block of Prince Edward Highway. The caller stated that three individuals entered his residence around 4a.m. armed with weapons.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the three men entered the house by force through a side door. The homeowner confronted the trio and a gun battle ensued. Two of the invaders were killed inside the home and the third escaped into the night.

The Sheriff’s Office tells us the third suspect was a black male wearing dark clothing. K-9 units were brought in and tracked the suspect a quarter of a mile west of the crime scene where they believe he got into a vehicle on Rt. 460.

Three handguns and a shotgun were recovered from the home.

The two deceased men were identified as Albert Lorenzo Johnson Jr., age 36 of Farmville and Carl Wayne Saunders, Jr. Age 29 of Lynchburg.

Saunders has been convicted of several charges over the years. In 2001, he pled guilty to possession of cocaine. In 2002, 2003, 2007 and 2009 he was found guilty of violating his probation. In 2007, he was convicted of possession of a schedule I/II controlled substance.

Johnson was convicted of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute in 2001. According to federal court records, in 2008, Johnson was charged with possession of 26 grams of cocaine with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in the Eastern District of Virginia’s US District Court. He was convicted of both counts and sentenced to 70 months in January of 2008.
