Bienville Parish Chief Investigator Darrell Mills reported that a second person has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of Damarion Richardson.  The shooting around 9:00 p.m. Wednesday night in the parking lot of Fastpak Foods on Second Street in Arcadia.  The shooting was the result of an ongoing feud between Shamichael Murphy and Damarion Richardson.

A little over two hours after the shooting in Arcadia, at least one or more armed men fired multiple times at a home on Plum Street in Minden.   A Minden Police detective said at least 25 shell casings from a semi-automatic weapon were recovered at the residence in the 700 block of Plum Street in Minden.  Three-year-old Aldravion Lewis was struck once and was pronounced dead at Minden Medical Center. 

Chief Investigator Mills said the Minden homicide resulted from the Arcadia shooting.  

Yesterday morning, police located the car the Abbotts and Richardson were in during the Arcadia shooting in an apartment complex parking lot in Minden.  Witnesses reported seeing bullet holes and blood on the car.  

Later that day, police arrested 24-year-old Shamichael Damohn Murphy of Arcadia, who is accused of fatally shooting 19-year-old Damarion Richardson, also of Arcadia.  Murphy was charged with second-degree murder.

Last night, police arrested 23-year-old Jamarcus Terrell Abbott of Arcadia and charged him with Simple Battery and Obstruction of Justice.  Chief Investigator Mills said there may be more charges filed against Jamarcus as the investigation continues.  

Police are still searching for 25-year-old David Abbott of Arcadia for questioning in the Arcadia shooting, and in connection with the Minden shooting which resulted in the death of the child.  David Abbott has an outstanding warrant for Aggravated Assault with a Firearm.
