Warrant issued for Lake Charles teen in fatal Huber Park shooting

A warrant has been issued for a Lake Charles teenager accused in the fatal Wednesday night shooting in Huber Park.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Kayla Vincent said deputies were dispatched to the park in the 2400 block of 4th Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. in reference to shots fired. She said the person who alerted the deputies of the shooting heard several shots fired and saw a white car fleeing the area.

Vincent said the victim, Markell B. Jackson, 18, of Lake Charles was transported to a local hospital with a gunshot wound and died of his injuries.

She said after reviewing surveillance footage in the area where the shooting occurred, detectives issued a warrant for Demontoriyuana Charles, 18, Lake Charles, signed by Judge Ronald Ware, charging him with second-degree murder; aggravated criminal damage to property; and illegal use of a weapon. His bond is set at $680,000.

Anyone with any information on Charles’ whereabouts is asked to call CPSO at 491-3605. Anyone who is found to be assisting or harboring him will be charged accordingly.

The investigation is continuing and more arrests are likely.  There is no further information to release at this time.

Det. Michelle Robinson is the lead investigator on this case.
