Police are asking for help locating Damaris Harmon, a 21-year-old suspect wanted in a weekend homicide in Crowley, officials said.

Harmon, of Crowley, is suspected of shooting to death Kenneth Drake on Saturday after walking into a West 7th Street residence to specifically look for the victim, Crowley Police Chief K.P. Gibson said.

Gibson said Harmon left the victim’s residence in a dark SUV.

Harmon is wanted on one count of first-degree murder. His last known address was 415 West Andrus.

“This was not a random act, as our investigation shows that Harmon entered the residence with force and sought the victim in the residence,” Gibson said earlier this week.

Gibson described Harmon as a black male with short hair, 6-feet 3-inches tall and weighing 160 pounds.

Anyone with information on Harmon’s whereabouts can call (337) 789-TIPS. All callers remain anonymous, and may receive up to $1,000 reward.
