The Abbeville Police Department says that a second arrest has been made in a June 6 shooting incident near Vernon and Schlessinger Streets.

Witnesses tell KATC that the shooting happened near Heuy Street where it intersects with Israel Parker Drive.

Police say they responded to a shots fired call on June 6 around 6:19 pm. There they recovered several casings and were told by witnesses that a 16-year-old suspect was responsible for the shooting. That teen was located by police running down the street. He was detained and transported to the Abbeville Police Department.

During the investigation, it was learned by police that the teenager and another suspect, identified as 25-year-old LaDaedrick Narcisse, were allegedly shooting at one another. The shooting is believed to be the result of an ongoing feud.
