|One shot in West Monroe, suspect at large|
OFFICIAL WEST MONROE POLICE PRESS RELEASE, 7:50 p.m.
Today West Monroe Police responded to a call at 1001 Glenwood Drive in reference to a man with a gun. The suspect, armed with a long rifle broke into an apartment and confronted the resident there. The suspect was apparently looking for someone who did not live there.
The suspect then stole a truck from the apartment complex and traveled to Chase Bank, 131 Thomas Road, West Monroe. Upon entering the bank the suspect brandished the long rifle and robbed the bank.
After leaving the bank the suspect traveled to the Sunshine Heights Shopping Center, 3400 Cypress Street, in West Monroe. The suspect had a short conversation with a white male in the parking lot, and then shot the victim at close range with the long gun.
The motive for the shooting is unknown at this time. The victim died a short time later after being transported to the hospital. (Victim information is pending).
The suspect left the parking area of Sunshine Heights driving north on Warren Drive.
About 80 minutes later an attempted car jacking occurred in El Dorado, Ark., by a suspect matching the same description. The West Monroe Police Department has not confirmed at this time if this is positively
the same suspect wanted in connection with our Bank Robbery / shooting.
West Monroe Police have confirmed that shooting suspect was later involved in an altercation where shots were fired with a Webster Parish Sheriff's deputy and stole her 2002 white Nissan Xterra with Louisiana license plate number SBX 583.
The suspect has still not been apprehended and should be considered armed and dangerous. Our Investigation is ongoing at this time.
West Monroe police were on the hunt Thursday afternoon for Stephen Lane Saulsbury, Jr., who allegedly shot another man at close range in the Brookshire's grocery store parking lot on Cypress Street.
Around 4:55 p.m. a spokesperson with the West Monroe Police Department told The Ouachita Citizen that the police department was informed the victim had died, but that information had not been confirmed.
West Monroe Police Cpl. Jade Gabb said Saulsbury first went to Glenwood Townhomes by the West Monroe Wal-Mart. He kicked in a door to a town home and brandished a rifle. No one was injured at the town homes.
Saulsbury then went to Chase Bank on Thomas Road and brandished a rifle there, Gabb said. No one was harmed at the bank either.
At that point, according to police, Saulsbury went to Brookshire's where the shooting occurred at roughly 2 p.m. A motive for the shooting is not known at this time.
"We're working three complete crime scenes," Gabb added.
The victim was transported from the Brookshire's parking lot to a local hospital with a gunshot wound to the upper chest.
At the crime scene at Brookshire's, the victim's clothes could be seen. The shirt was soaked in blood and there was a large pool of blood on the ground.
Saulsbury took off from the Brookshire's parking lot in a stolen truck, a silver Toyota Tundra, with a license plate of W750678.
He turned onto Warren Drive from the Brookshire's parking lot, which is where he was last seen traveling.
Police locked down Highland Elementary School for about an hour. Other nearby schools were put on alert, but no other school was locked down, Ouachita Parish Schools superintendent Dr. Bob Webber said.
"We put those other schools on alert and locked down Highland as a precaution since it was near the scene," Webber said.
"We felt comfortable with just alerting the other schools, and the West Monroe Police Department and Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office both cooperated with us and did a great job. Highland principal Jan Mercer and her staff also did a great job," Webber said.
Good Hope Middle School's Thursday night basketball game also was canceled.
