Calcasieu sheriff's deputies have arrested two men and are seeking a third person in connection with the Saturday shootng death of a Lake Charles resident.

Brackus Guillory 24, was found shot on the side of the road near the intersection of Brentwood and Tennessee streets at about 1 a.m. Saturday. He was transported to a hospital where he later died.

Later that day, detectives were able to identify a truck that was possibly involved in the shooting, and they tracked it to Tyler Guillory, 24, of Lake Charles. He is no related to the victim, deputies say. When they found Guillory at his home, they also allegedly found marijuana, meth, crack and guns which had been reported stolen in Sulphur, deputies say.

They arrested Tyler Guillory, but also learned that he was not driving the truck at the time of the shooting. Three other men had the truck, deputies learned. They were identified as Kasheel Tomilnson, 21; Hakeem Smith, 20; and Markeya Jackson, 18. Tomlinson and Smith were arrested at Tyler Guillory's house, deputies say. They tried to find Jackson, but so far haven't been able to locate her.

Tyler Guillory was booked with 2 counts of illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon; possession of CDS I with intent to distribute; possession of CDS II (methamphetamine); possession of CDS II (crack cocaine); illegal possession of a stolen firearm; and 2 counts of possession of a firearm in the presences of CDS. His bond is set at $65,000 but he remains in the Calcasieu Correctional Center.

Tomlinson was booked with second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon. His bond is set at $750,000.

Smith was booked with principal to second-degree murder, and his bond is set at $500,000.

When she is found, Jackson also will be booked with principal to second-degree murder.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information relating to this shooting or the whereabouts of Jackson to please call CPSO at 491-3605 or Crime Stoppers at 439-2222. Anyone knowingly harboring Jackson or withholding information or evidence from law enforcement will be subject to charges.

It is believed the shooting is the result of an illegal drug transaction and the victim was an innocent bystander who happened to be at the park.
