Authorities arrested four men who were seen leaving a bar with a Louisiana State University student.
The four suspects, one a minor, are allegedly involved in the rape of 19-year-old Madison Brooks, ultimately leading to her death after being struck by a vehicle in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
While the minor involved is not named, we know that 18-year-old Casen Carver and 28-year-old Everette Lee face charges of principal to third-degree rape. 18-year-old Kaivon Washington and the unnamed juvenile have been arrested for third-degree rape.

Brooks was seen on surveillance leaving in a car with the four suspects. During the drive, Brooks was allegedly raped in the car. Then, the victim was dropped off at a subdivision, where she was later hit and killed by a vehicle.
According to reports, the suspects turned themselves into authorities; three were booked into the parish prison, and the minor into juvenile detention.
