A third arrest has been made in connection with a January shooting death in Opelousas.

18-year-old Antonio Livings of Opelousas was arrested Tuesday for his involvement in the shooting death of 37-year-old Kelly Guidry. Livings was booked into the St. Landry Parish Jail on charges of second degree murder, attempted second degree murder, and criminal damage to property.
