Suspect Dominique Lindsey, 22, was the first to be arrested in the crime and was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery, and robbery. Warrants have been issued by the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office for Sedrick Sanders, 31, and Marrquise Dorsey, who remain at large.
Along with the conspiracy to commit robbery, and robbery, Sanders, Calvert, Robinson and Dorsey are also being charged with first degree murder in the death of the victim.
According to an affidavit filed in the District Court of Jackson County, Phan, Han Dang and Dung Phan had all been to local nightclub Scooters where they met Lindsey and Calvert. During interviews, the men said that while there the girls were approached by Lindsey’s cousin, Sanders. The men had left Scooters, but later agreed to go to a party with the girls after talking to Calvert on the phone. When the men returned to Scooters, Calvert got into the driver’s seat of the men’s car and drove them to the Ridgecrest Apartments where they parked in front of one of the apartments. Several black males came out of the breezeway of one of the apartments and approached the car. Two of the men went to the passenger’s side and and pulled Hai Phan out of the car and began to assault him. At that point, Calvert and Lindsey got out of the car and fled on foot. One of the men got into the seat left by Hai Phan and began assaulting Dang over the seat. Victim Dang said that he saw at least two attackers with guns. He then saw the man assaulting Hai Phan shot him and he heard the gunshot. Dang said that man that shot Hai Phan then reached in and took the wallets from their pockets and then all three fled on foot. Dang also said that the man they met at Scooters was the same man that shot Phan. Dung Phan said that he also witnessed Sanders shoot Hai Phan.
A service check of Phan’s cellphone discovered that a calls were made between Phan and Calvert. Lindsey was identified because she had put her name and phone number into Han Dang’s cell phone while at Scooters. She was later ID’d by the victims by photo.
After being taken into custody, Lindsey said that Calvert had approached her and said that she was going to take the men to the apartment complex where Sanders was going to rob them, and offered her a portion of the money taken.
Lindsey said that Calvert had told her that Phan had a lot of money on him because he had been buying a lot of drinks and flashing money around. She then said that did go with Calvert and the men to the apartments, and got out of the car and ran when the other men approached the vehicle. She said she heard the gunshot as she was fleeing, got into Calvert’s car with her, and dropped off at her mother’s house.
She said that Sanders called her later that day from a number she thought to be his mother’s in Dallas, Texas. She said that when she asked him about the gunshot, he said that he told her he did not shoot the man, but only shot into the air.
Calvert was arrested in Vernon, Texas Thursday and said that Sanders had driven her car back to the apartment complex while she drove the victims’ car. She said that Robinson, also known as Lil’ Pat, and Marrquise Dorsey, also known as Queese from the Ease, accompanied Sanders.
Calvert said that she and Robinson coordinated the trip over cell phones.
When Calvert arrived at the apartments, she said she saw Sanders, Robinson and Dorsey run from the stairwell, tell her and Lindsey to get out of the car, and then they both fled.
Robinson was arrested Thursday after coming into the Altus Police Department to fill out a statement. Sanders and Dorsey are still at large.
It was said by Calvert that the wallets were thrown away in the dumpsters behind Lindsey’s home, but they have not been found there, or at the City landfill.
Captain Michael Turner of the Altus Police Department said money was taken, but the amount is unknown.
He also added that Phan was also stabbed during the incident, but he died from the gunshot wound, not the stabbing.
