Ville Platte Police searching for Murder Suspect


VILLE PLATTE POLICE SEARCHING FOR MURDER SUSPECT

JULY 28, 2014

 

   Ville Platte City Police are investigating a shooting incident that claimed the life of the store clerk. Police Chief Neal Lartigue told KVPI News, his department was notified just before noon today (Monday) of a robbery in progress at the K&T convenience store on Lincoln. Upon arrival, police discovered the victim behind the store counter dead from apparent gunshot wounds. It is not determined if any cash was taken. Police are searching for the shooting suspect: a black male wearing a black cap, white T shirt and wearing a red bandana. After the shooting, the suspect left on a blue Schwinn bicycle. Two eyewitnesses were ordered to leave the store by the apparent suspect. The body of the victim has been sent to have an autopsy as ordered by Coroner Dr. Charles Fontenot. Twelve years ago, a shooting took place in the same store where the store owner at the time shot and killed a robbery suspect. Chief Lartigue said police have a suspect in mind and they are currently searching for him.
