LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — Workers at a Dollar General store in Louisiana recognized a man accused of killing two teenagers and kidnapping a third, and locked him in after escorting customers out.

News agencies report 51-year-old Neil Broussard of Lake Charles surrendered Thursday at the store in Beauregard Parish.

A judge in neighboring Calcasieu Parish set his bond at $4 million.

He’s accused of killing a 17-year-old girl and an 18-year-old boy, wounding the girl’s mother and kidnapping the woman’s 14-year-old daughter early Wednesday morning.

Authorities say he’s a convicted sex offender.

They say he was wanted on sex charges in Louisiana and scheduled for trial on sex charges in Texas.
