Authorities have arrested one suspect and another remains at large in connection to a fatal shooting Friday at a Houma apartment complex.
The shooting claimed the life of 22-year-old Damon Kyntrell Wallis, of Houma, the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies and detectives were called out around 11:38 a.m. to the Landing Apartments at 1803 Martin Luther King Blvd. to investigate reports of shots being fired, authorities said.
When deputies arrived to the apartment complex, they could not locate a victim but found evidence that a shooting had occurred, the Sheriff’s Office said. Multiple bullet casings were recovered, a truck sustained bullet holes and there were blood stains on the parking lot, authorities said.
The Sheriff’s Office then received a call that a man was at a local hospital who had suffered from gunshot wounds, authorities said. Deputies went to the hospital and identified the gunshot victim as Wallis, who was later pronounced dead.
Detectives said they learned through further investigation that the shooting resulted from a “drug-related robbery” and that marijuana was recovered at the crime scene.
Authorities arrested 19-year-old Jordan Ray, of Houma, in connection to the investigation and identified a second suspect as Darrell Rene Scott Jr., 25. Ray was charged with illegal discharge of a firearm, aggravated criminal damage to property and possession of a stolen firearm.
Ray was booked into the Terrebonne Parish jail, where he's being held without bond.
Scott, who remains at large, is wanted for second-degree murder in connection to the shooting, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Authorities are asking anyone who has information on Scott’s location to call the Sheriff’s Office at 876-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-743-7433.
