Suspect in Crowley slaying turns himself in to police

One of three suspects in the April slaying of a 16-year-old in Crowley turned himself in Wednesday night to city police and federal agents, who had been searching for him, officials said.

Patrick Moore, 21, was booked into the Acadia Parish Jail on one count of first-degree murder and one count of attempted first-degree murder, Crowley Police Chief K.P. Gibson said.

Police are still searching for another suspect, 20-year-old Denzel McIntyre, who also goes by the name D-Mac. McIntyre too is a Crowley resident. A third suspect, Brandon Moore, was arrested in April.

The men are suspects in the killing of Perry Davis III, who was shot in the head the evening of April 5 as he and another man sat in a car. Davis died at a Lafayette hospital. The 18-year-old who was in the car with Davis was shot in the arm and survived, Gibson said.

Gibson said Patrick Moore is related to the third suspect in the case, Brandon Moore, 21, who remains in the parish jail. A judge denied Brandon Moore bail on one count of attempted first-degree murder, set the bail on the attempted murder count at $250,000, and added another $250,000 on a felon in possession of a weapon count that was added after he was arrested in April.

McIntyre, the fugitive, is 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighs 160 pounds and has long dreadlocks.

“We are working sources as well as we can to get this guy off the streets,” Gibson said.

Anyone with information on McIntyre’s location is asked to call police at (337) 783-1234 or Crime Stoppers at (337) 789-TIPS.
