DENHAM SPRINGS - Sheriff Jason Ard says the suspect in a deadly shooting Wednesday morning is in custody.

Deputies believe Daniel Roberts is responsible for shooting a man in the Eastover Estates area at 6 a.m. The victim, identified by family members as Billy Forrest, later died at the hospital.

Roberts was found on LA Trace Road in French Settlement by Livingston Parish Sheriff's deputies just before 8 p.m.

"I can tell you that our victim was struck in the abdomen from a bullet fired from a handgun," Ard said. "The motive is still unclear at this point in our investigation."


Earlier Wednesday, 29-year-old Cary Cedotal was arrested for obstruction of justice.

Deputies are still investigating. More charges and arrests are possible.

Anyone with information is asked to call 225-686-2241.
