Marshals arrest suspect in attempted murder

The U.S. Marshals Violent Offenders Task Force arrested a Lafayette man Monday wanted on one count of attempted first-degree murder, officials said.

Douglas Dugas, 30, was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on one count of attempted first-degree murder in a Feb. 22 shooting in Lafayette, Lafayette police Cpl. Paul Mouton said in a release.

The shooting occurred in the 100 block of Royal Street, witnesses said, by a man who fired several shots at the victim’s home and hit him in the back.

On March 24, after Dugas was identified as the suspect, the Lafayette Police Department issued a warrant for his arrest.

The victim was released from a local hospital a few days after the shooting.

The case remains under investigation, Mouton said.

St. Landry Parish man killed in Monday crash

A Washington man died Monday after his truck veered off Eugene Soileau Road, stuck an embankment and overturned, a St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman said.

Colby Jeansonne, 19, was pronounced dead at the scene by the St. Landry Parish coroner, Capt. Megan Vizena said.

Two passengers in Jeansonne’s vehicle, Dillon Dupre and Tristen Dupre, both of Washington, were treated for minor injuries.

Jeansonne, who was not wearing a seat belt, was speeding westbound on Eugene Soileau Road in a Chevrolet pickup when he went off the road, Vizena said.

Routine toxicology samples were sent to the State Police Crime Lab for analysis, Vizena said, and the crash remains under investigation.
