2 accused of witness intimidation in Port Allen shooting
PORT ALLEN - Two people accused of using social media to threaten witnesses to the Aug. 16 shooting of a man in Port Allen were arrested on charges of intimidation of witnesses.
Alicary Jackson, 20, and Robert Lee Williams, 18, are accused of using Facebook to call a witness a "rat", and also threatened witnesses with violence similar to that which hospitalized the victim last Saturday, according to Port Allen Police Chief Esdron Brown.
Wednesday's arrests bring the total in the case to three. Michael J. Jackson, 20, of Port Allen, was booked on an attempted second-degree murder charge on the same day the shooting occurred near Franklin Street.
Multiple shots were fired and one man was shot in leg.
