Woman dead, man injured in shooting that led to standoff
VILLE PLATTE, La. (AP) - A Louisiana man has shot and killed his ex-girlfriend, wounded a second man and fired into a police car.
Ville Platte Police Chief Neil Lartigue tells local news outlets that 25-year-old Davonte Marquis Ardoin shot 21-year-old Rene Williams Sunday when she came to his house to bring Ardoin a child. Lartigue says 30-year-old James Macias, accompanying Williams, was shot five times and taken to a hospital in Lafayette.
Macias remains hospitalized.
Lartigue says Ardoin fired at arriving officers, hitting a police car. Ardoin barricaded himself in his house and fired his gun, later surrendering. No officers were injured.
Ardoin is booked on first-degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault on a police officer and other charges. Bail is set at $1.39 million. It's unclear if Ardoin has a lawyer.
