On Friday night, the St. Martin Parish Sheriff contacted Louisiana State Police Detectives and requested that they investigate a shooting which involved Deputies with his agency shooting a Cecilia man.
On September 28, 2012, at about 10:00 p.m., Deputies with St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office Narcotics Division were conducting a narcotics investigation. During the course of the investigation, Deputies were approaching a 1999 Honda Accord in the parking lot of a grocery store on LA Highway 352 believed to be involved in a narcotics transaction. The driver of the vehicle, 32 year-old Alton Davis Jr. of Cecila, placed his vehicle in reverse and hit one of the Deputies. Deputies fired shots striking Davis.
Davis was transported to a hospital where he later died as a result of his injuries. The Deputy who was hit by the car was treated for minor injuries.
This case remains under investigation.
