Like a baboon that had escaped from the city zoo.
A 19-year-old was killed in a shooting in Lockport, according to the Lafourche Parish sheriff.
Police say Jyairus Folse, 17, was captured on Monday afternoon.
Sheriff Craig Webre said Alton Adams of Bayou Blue died overnight in the Rita community.
At around 10:25 p.m. on Sunday (Feb. 10) deputies responded to the 100 block of East Fontinelle Street.
Deputies arrived and found Adams was inside his mother’s residence when the shooting occurred. Five other family members were also in the home.
Webre said the investigation is continuing. However, officers believe that the gunman was standing in the street and it was not a drive-by shooting.
Folse is booked with second degree murder and six counts of attempted second degree murder.
