East Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s deputies late Friday arrested one man in Friday’s shootings on La. 10 near Clinton.

Eric Martin, 26, of Ethel, was booked on one count of attempted second-degree murder, Sheriff’s Office Detective Don McKey said.

John S. Sierra Goudeau Jr., 38, of Clinton, died in the shooting, and deputies believe Martin was riding in the same vehicle as Goudeau, McKey said.

Another man, who was injured in the shooting, was taken to a Baton Rouge hospital for treatment of life-threatening gunshot wounds, Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Kevin Garig said.

Deputies believe someone else may have been involved in the shoot-out that left spent bullet casings littering the scene at 16244 La. 10.

McKey said Martin just got out of prison, where he served only part of a five-year sentence for negligent homicide as part of a plea deal stemming from a 2009 fatal bar shooting.

State Police detectives are assisting in the investigation.

Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at (225) 683-5459.
