|West Monroe police work second homicide of year|
West Monroe police officers late Thursday found the bodies of two local residents in the same apartment complex where a shooting death occurred last week.
The victims found late Thursday died from an apparent murder/suicide, according to West Monroe police.
West Monroe police were called to an apartment complex at 409 South 2nd St. Thursday afternoon to check on the welfare of the occupants, according to Cpl. Jade Gabb.
Once at the residence, officers were unable to make contact with anyone inside of the apartment. Additional information prompted officers to enter the apartment, and once inside, they discovered 29-year-old Alicia M. Bell and 23-year-old Gadriel D. Jones. They were deceased.
"Both persons appeared to have been deceased for a period of time prior to our arrival," Gabb said. "Our preliminary investigation indicates that this was a murder/suicide."
The bodies will undergo an autopsy.
"No information exists at this time to indicate that this incident is related to the recent homicide reported on Feb. 9 at the same apartment complex," Gabb said.
Thursday's homicide marked the second homicide within the city limits of West Monroe in 2011.
A Monroe man was arrested earlier this week in connection to a shooting death at the same West Monroe apartment complex in which officers found the two bodies Thursday.
Aljerone Moran, 23, 3711 Dick Taylor St., was arrested by Ouachita Parish Sheriff's deputies Wednesday and booked into Ouachita Correctional Center on one count of second degree murder and one count of attempted second degree murder. Those charges stemmed from the Feb. 9 incident at the apartment complex located in the 400 block of South Second Street.
Moran's bond has been set at $750,000.
West Monroe police last week responded to a report of a person found shot and lying near the apartment complex on South Second Street.
The victim, later identified as 20-year-old Roderkick R. McCullon, was transported to St. Francis Medical Center, where he later died.
"As our investigation progressed, a second victim, who was not on the scene when officers initially arrived, was identified as 40-year-old Marvin Fritz. He also received a gunshot wound and was transported to St. Francis," Gabb said.
Fritz was still listed in critical condition earlier this week.
