Police are looking for 21-year-old Tavis Jenkins of Alexandria in connection with a fatal double shooting at an apartment complex in Lafayette Sunday.
Police say they were called to an apartment in the 200 block of Merchants Boulevard around 12:30 p.m. in regards to a shooting.
Witnesses say an ex-boyfriend of one of the victims entered the apartment without authorization, and when the 23-year-old male victim tried to walk the suspect out of the apartment, the suspect pulled out a handgun and began shooting.
Public Information Officer Paul Mouton says the 23-year-old victim was shot twice and the 17-year-old victim, a male roommate to the third victim, was shot once.
The third person, an ex-girlfriend to Jenkins, was in the apartment, but was not injured.
The two victims who sustained gunshot wounds were transported to local hospitals where they were both listed in critical condition.
17-year-old Antonio Means, of Lafayette, died from his injuries at a local hospital.
The second victim, a 23-year-old male, remains hospitalized in critical condition.
Detectives have issued arrest warrants for Tavis Jenkins for 1 count of 1st Degree Murder and 2 counts of Attempted 1st Degree Murder.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Tavis Jenkins is encouraged to call Lafayette Police or Crime Stoppers at (337) 232-TIPS.
Thoughts? I should mention I slightly edited the KATC article to put the area code for the Crime Stoppers line if Jenkins is outside the area. In Lafayette itself, I think you can just dial 232-TIPS without the area code.
