A Lake Charles man and woman were arrested in connection with Sunday’s double shooting at the St. Charles Place Apartment complex on West 18th Street, Police Chief Don Dixon said at a news conference Wednesday.

Bishop Slade Dubroc and Brailyn Marie Langford, both 19, 1000 Esplanade St., were arrested Tuesday on two counts of attempted second-degree murder.

During a search of the Esplanade home, detectives found marijuana, weapons and cash, according to Dixon. He said the shooting may have been the result of a “dope deal gone wrong.”

Judge David Ritchie set Dubroc’s bond at $1 million and Langford’s at $400,000.

The shooting occurred at 7:38 p.m. Sunday.

Dixon said the two victims — a man and woman — remain hospitalized. He said the woman is six months pregnant.

Dixon said Dubroc has a prior arrest for simple robbery.

Also arrested was 19-year-old Devin Paul Thomas of Lake Charles, who was at the scene of the shooting. Dixon said Thomas was arrested for a probation violation after pleading guilty in August to three felony counts.

Dixon said a 15-year-old boy was also arrested at the home on Esplanade.

The police chief said the juvenile is on probation and is being charged with narcotics violations.

Dixon issued a warning for others involved with drugs: “If you deal narcotics, I have three words for you — get a job ... get out of town, or go to jail,” he said. “If you commit a violent crime in this city, we’re going to get you.”

Bond was not set for Thomas.
