Default WM, 19 shot to death Lockport, LA by the colored boy


Teen charged in weekend murder

Feb 12, 2019

A teenager from Lockport is charged with second-degree murder after a weekend shooting.

At around 10:25 p.m., on Sunday night, deputies responded to a call of a shooting in the 100 block of East Fontinelle Street in the Rita community in Lockport.

Deputies arrived on the scene and found that Alton Adams, 19, of Bayou Blue, was struck by a single round.

Authorities rendered aid until EMT's arrived, but Adams was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities said he was inside his mother's residence with six other individuals when they heard shots. At least eight rounds were fired with at least four striking the residence. One of those rounds hit Adams and resulted in his death.

Sunday night and into early Monday morning, LPSO worked the scene to develop a suspect, interviewing witnesses and neighbors.

Through that work, Jyairus Folse, 17, of Lockport, was identified as a suspect and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Authorities made contact with Folse on Monday and he was taken into custody.
