Two Thibodaux men are wanted by the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office in connection with the fatal shooting in Patterson.
Sheriff Blaise Smith is asking the public to be on the lookout for Tireke Johnson and Jordan Franklin of the Thibodaux area.
They are wanted in connection with the ongoing investigation into the March 25, 2021, shooting in the Zenor Road area of Patterson. That shooting claimed the life of 21-year-old Keiondre Onell Allridge of Thibodaux.
Charges for the two are manslaughter and possession of a stolen firearm. Information on their connection to the shooting was not provided.
The public is advised to contact the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office at 337-828-1960 with any information regarding the location of Tireke Johnson and Jordan Franklin.
On March 25, Deputies responded to a call of shots fired in the area of Zenor Road at 8:35 p.m. along with an additional call of a possible wounded man at a business in Patterson. Upon arrival at the business, deputies made contact with three occupants in a vehicle.
