New Roads: Man shot during fight outside bar

Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff’s Deputies issued an arrest warrant Sunday for a New Roads man they say fatally shot another man at a bar Saturday night, a sheriff’s spokesman said.

The warrant was issued for Joshua Wayne Louis, 25, Carver Drive, New Roads, on one count of second-degree murder in the death of Demona Anthony Brown, 36, Capt. Steve Juge said. No street address was provided for Louis.

Brown was shot once in the face during an altercation at AJ’s Bar on La. 420, Juge said.

Based on witness statements, detectives found out that Saturday’s shooting stemmed from an incident that happened about two weeks ago, Juge said. However, Juge did not provide any details of the incident.

Brown was taken by private vehicle to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, Juge said.
