A grand jury indicted one person believed to be involved in a June shooting on Fall Street, but declined to accept first-degree murder charges on the other three people accused.

Desmyne Joseph Henry, 22, was indicted on one count of first-degree murder.

Grand jurors did not indict Douglas Lawrence Clifton, 28, Justin Jamar Duncan, 24, or Devontea Deon Fontenot, 20.

Police said the four were involved in the June 25 death of Domingo Elizalde MiJangos, 31, at 734 Fall St. Police Chief Don Dixon called it a “drug rip-off.”

The grand jury also declined to indict all four men and a woman, Sade Jacob, 23, on a second charge — manufacturing or possessing drugs with the intent to distribute.

Jacob was arrested on an accessory to first-degree murder charge, but the grand jury rejected that as well.

In another courtroom Wednesday, Henry had requested a bond-reduction hearing, but that was reset for Dec. 7.

Other indictments:

• Kendall Tremayne Runnells, 33, was indicted on two counts of second-degree kidnapping and felony use of weapons. He reportedly took his girlfriend’s 6- and a 7-year-old children hostage Aug. 21 after an argument at her McNabb Street home.

• David Thomas Shelton, 35, was indicted on charges of child pornography and aggravated incest. The crimes reportedly took place from Oct. 28, 2006, through Feb. 28, 2012, when the victim was between 7 and 12 years old.

• Crystal Kay Morris, 33, was indicted on a count of indecent behavior with a juvenile where the victim is under 17 and there is greater than a two-year age difference between the two people. According to the indictment, the crimes took place between Jan. 23 and June 23.
