Lakeland Man Shoots, Kills Burglar By Eva Kis LAKELAND — A Lakeland man was shot and killed while burglarizing a neighbor’s home Friday night, the Polk Sheriff’s Office said. Today sheriff's detectives found and arrested his accomplice, who had run away after the shooting, the Sheriff's Office said. Two armed, masked men identified as James McArthur Johnson Jr., 31, and Elvin Tolliver, 39, walked up to the apartment at 545 Timberlane W. about 8:50 p.m. Several people were outside visiting the residents, and the suspects forced them into the apartment, demanding money and jewelry from them, said sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Chief W.J. Martin. Johnson, of 534 Timberlane W., Apt. D., went deeper into the home to the bedroom. When he opened the door, one of the residents shot him once with a shotgun, Martin said. Johnson collapsed outside the home and was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS. The second suspect, Tolliver, ran from the apartment after the shooting, the Sheriff’s Office said. His last known address is 705 N. Terrace Circle, Lakeland, and detectives had a warrant charging him with second-degree murder and a life-felony count of burglary of an occupied dwelling. He was arrested this evening.
