2 arrested in drive-by slaying in Independence

AMITE, La. (AP) - Tangipahoa Parish deputies have arrested two people and are searching for a third suspect in Sunday night's shooting that left a 37-year-old woman dead.

Sheriff Daniel Edwards says Sandra Butler was an innocent bystander shot in a drive-by shooting in a feud involving rap lyrics.

Edwards tells The Advocate deputies arrested 19-year-old Davontaye Jackson on Monday in Independence and 24-year-old Verdale Anthony Moore, of Hammond, was arrested on Tuesday.

Both have been booked with first-degree murder.

Edwards says a 17-year-old suspect is still at large and thought to be in the New Orleans area.

It was unclear whether Jackson and Moore have attorneys.
