PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

Marty D. Morgan, one of the suspects wanted in the fatal triple shooting outside a Prattville barbershop, has been taken into custody and is being held without bond at the Autauga Metro Jail.

According to Prattville Police and U.S. Marshals, Morgan was arrested unarmed and without incident  Monday morning around 9:45 at the Garden Grove Apartment complex, formerly Jackson Square Apartments, in Montgomery.

Tom Hession, Acting U.S. Marshal for the Middle District of Alabama, said Morgan was surrounded by the Task Force. "They had enough people to convince him that it wouldn't be a good idea to run. He was taken into custody."

After his arrest, Morgan spent approximately four hours at Prattville police headquarters before his transfer to the Metro Jail.

Officials say two others were also arrested for aiding and abetting Morgan. They have been identified as Thomas Lipson and Donnell Ruffin.

"If you help these people, if there's somebody out there that's wanted and you help them, we're going to arrest you for that," Hession said.  "You cannot assist these people in their attempt to flee justice."

Investigators announced Thursday the arrest of 19-year-old Keon Cain, Morgan’s suspected accomplice. He is also charged with 3 counts of murder, with other charges pending. He's being held without bond in Montgomery.

Morgan and Cain are accused of going into the Hook-Up Barbershop, located near the intersection of Highway 82 and Highway 14 where multiple people were shot and killed.

Three victims, Eddie Scott, 56, of Autauga County; Anthony Smith, 45, of Autauga County; and Al Benson, 50, of Elmore County; were killed. A fourth victim was shot but survived. The motive appears to be armed robbery.?
