Second shooter in custody

Sean Gray, 18, of the 500 block of Natchitoches Street, Sibley, is charged with illegal use of a weapon. He is incarcerated at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center under a $5,000 bond.

Devan Lucas, 20, of the 2600 block of Foster Road, Haughton, was arrested last week on the same charge after both men were seen shooting their guns from a moving vehicle on Lee Street.

"We obtained warrants for both of these men after we received information about them from (Louisiana Department of) Wildlife and Fisheries," said Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper. "We thought one shot his gun at the bank across from the (Webster Parish) courthouse, but actually they both fired their weapons on Lee Street and hit the branch bank out there where Sibley Road and Lee meet."

Cropper said his officers contacted Gray's parents, who said he was living in Bossier (parish).

"We made contact with authorities in Bossier, and they said he had moved back to his parents' house in Sibley," said the chief. "We revisited his parents, and they said he was in Arkansas with another person. We explained to them that they needed to make contact with him and have him turn himself in – which he did Tuesday."

According to Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, their agents cited Gray for hunting and taking deer during illegal hours, hunting deer from a public road, hunting from a moving vehicle, discharging a firearm from a public road, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

In addition, agents cited nine other citizens for alleged deer hunting violations from December, 2011 to February, 2012 in Webster and Bienville parishes.

Lucas was cited for hunting from a moving vehicle, hunting deer using illegal methods, discharging a firearm from a public road, taking deer from a public road, taking deer during illegal hours, hunting without muzzleloader, big game or resident licenses and failing to comply with deer tagging requirements.

He was incarcerated at BDCC before bonding out.
