Suspect Identified and Arrested in Opelousas Shooting

An arrest has been made in the Opelousas shooting last night. Investigators say it happened at 7:46pm on Planters Street near Hattisburg Street. Officers say when they arrived on scene they found 32 year old Eric Harrison of Opelousas fatally wounded and lying on Planters Street.

Goodley is being charged with 2nd degree murder and will go before a magistrate on Monday morning.

Police say the incident appears to have been a result of an ongoing feud between the Harrison and Goodley.

Goodley told police that Harrison told him he did not belong in the area. That's when Harrison allegedly reached for his waistband; which is why Goodley allegedly pulled out his gun(9mm) and fired several shots at Harrison.

Harrison was shot several times and died on the scene.

The weapon has not been located, however, officers say they found a 22cal revolver in the victim's jacket pocket.
