Pointe Coupee Parish sheriff's deputies have issued an arrest warrant for a 25-year-old New Roads man wanted in a fatal bar shooting.
The Advocate reports the warrant was issued Sunday for Joshua Wayne Louis on one count of second-degree murder in the death of 36-year-old Demona Anthony Brown.
Capt. Steve Juge says Brown was shot once in the face during an altercation Saturday night at AJ's Bar on La. Highway 420 north of New Roads.
Juge says Brown was taken by private vehicle to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
