Investigators said the men inside the shed overpowered Ladson and began struggling with him over the gun.  Eventually, they took the gun away from him.

After Ladson was disarmed, the people continued beating him using wooden boards, their fists and feet, and the gun they had taken away from him, the warrant says.

“At this point, the victim was helpless,” detectives said.

A witness told police that the fatal blow was dealt with a four by four. Ladson’s body was then dragged to the Rittiman location, the affidavit says.
