LAKE CHARLES - Four people who helped Senior Trooper Steven Vincent while he was critically wounded during a traffic stop were honored Monday for their courage.
Louisiana State Police held a ceremony to recognize their bravery and assistance at 11:15 a.m.
One of the people recognized is Robert LeDoux, who tackled the man suspected of shooting Vincent and helped handcuff and hold on to him until police arrived. Vincent was shot Aug. 23 after he found the man's truck in a ditch and stopped to offer assistance. He died the next day.

Kevin Daigle, the man whom LeDoux is credited with apprehending, is now charged in Vincent's death.
