EUNICE, La. — The Eunice Police Department made two arrests in connection with a shooting on South Cane Street in Eunice on Friday.

An EPD spokesperson says that Jeddimyers Vallare, 29, shot at Dustin Johnson, 33 on May 3 as he was driving down South Cane Street. Johnson had a juvenile passenger in the vehicle with him at the time.

Investigators say that Vallare shot at Johnson through the vehicle window and shot out his back rear glass.

Vallare then chased Johnson down South Cane and then south on LA 13 heading toward Crowley.

Investigators say that they later discovered that when Johnston got to his destination at the Crestview Apartments on Aymond Street, he went behind apartments where Vallare's father lives and shot at that house in retaliation.

Johnson was arrested on May 7 on a bench warrant and later charged with five counts of Attempted 2nd Degree Murder by EPD.

Vallare turned himself in to EPD and was charged with two counts of Attempted Second Degree Murder and one count of Aggravated Criminal Damage to Property on May 29.
