Third suspect in custody in Crowley teen slaying

Crowley police over the weekend arrested another suspect in the April shooting death of a teenager, and also arrested a woman suspected of aiding the fugitive while he was on the lam, officials said.

Denzel McIntyre, 20, of Crowley, was arrested early Saturday on counts of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder in the April 5 killing of Perry Davis III and wounding of another male who was in a car with Davis, Police Chief K.P. Gibson said.

Also arrested over the weekend was Sharonda McZeal, 18, of Crowley, on one count of obstruction of justice.

“McZeal was charged as she was directly involved in aiding a known, wanted fugitive,” Gibson said in a news release.

The arrests followed those of two other Crowley residents — Patrick Moore, 21, and Brandon Moore, 21, who also were booked on the murder and attempted murder counts.

The Moores and McIntyre remain in the Acadia Parish jail after a judge ordered them to be held without bond. McZeal’s bond was set at $25,000, Gibson said.

Davis was in a car with an 18-year-old male the night of April 5 when both were shot. Davis died in a Lafayette hospital. The other person, who has not been identified by police, was shot in the arm and recovered.
