Rapides Parish deputies responded to the shooting Friday afternoon at Liberty Arsenal.

The victim has been identified as 52-year-old David K. Paul of Pineville. A second victim was transported to an area hospital, and remains in critical but stable condition.

Deputies say 21-year-old Eric Dewayne Dixon turned himself in at the sheriff's office Saturday evening and is facing charges of first degree murder and attempted first degree murder.

A second suspect, 23-year-old Ramonte Lamar Jackson, is still wanted on the same charges. Deputies say Jackson should be considered armed and dangerous.
