Eunice Police Looking For Shooting Suspect
Eunice Police Chief Randy Fontenot says they are searching for a 19-year-old man who they say shot at a car Sunday evening according to a press release.
In addition to police looking for 19-year-old Jasten Thomas, they also say another person was responsible for firing shots at the victim and three people in a car.
The incident occurred just before 7 o'clock Sunday night in the 300 block of North Seventh Street. Multiple shots were fired, and 19-year-old Jeno Holcomb Jr. was hit three times by the gunfire. It turns out one of the bullets hit the gas tank of the victim's vehicle.
Fontenot says Thomas is wanted on four counts of attempted second-degree murder for everything that is alleged to have happened Sunday night.
