Ledet was incarcerated in Lafayette Parish Correctional Center for crimes he committed in the Lafayette Parish, and has since been transferred to Acadia Parish.

The Crowley Police Department says that Ledet was identified as the suspect for the shooting that took place on September 09, 2020, between the 1100 and 1200 block of West 6th Street.

Ledet is accused of firing multiple shots at a moving vehicle occupied by two people. Neither victims were hit by the shots but sustained minor injuries as the shooting, police say, caused their vehicle to go into multiple ditches.
