HAMMOND, LA (WAFB) -
Authorities say the suspect in a home invasion is accused of kidnapping two women and accused of raping one of them. The ordeal ended in a shootout between the suspect and police early Thursday morning.
The Hammond Police received a call from the St. John Sheriffs office in reference to a carjacking that occurred in St. John Parish. The call came in at approximately 5 a.m. Thursday stating that the vehicle that was carjacked was parked at the Circle K store in Hammond on South Morrison Blvd.
The vehicle was described as a 2009 Chevy driven by Durelle Jones, 24, who was attempting to start the vehicle and flee as officers arrived. The vehicle had an OnStar system, and the system was shutdown. The suspect then fled running as officers approached and started shooting at officers. Officers returned fire, hitting Jones twice.
The suspect attempted to break into a building on Derek Drive. When he broke into the back door the alarm went off and he then left the building. The suspect then hid underneath a car at a used car lot nearby where he was apprehended.
Jones was then taken to North Oaks hospital for treatment and is expected to be release with non life threatening injuries.
The Hammond Police also learned from St. John Parish that the suspect had kidnapped two women from Hammond in an apparent home invasion, which this suspect also took TV's and the victim's vehicle. Jones is accused of raping at least one of the women.
Those who live in the area, say they are surprised to hear such a thing would happen in a place they consider safe.
"I would've never thought we'd have trouble like that out here," said Thorlief Nielson. "It's terrible, it's horrific, it's no good. It's Satan."
Police say Jones morning did not stop there. The suspect then drove to Laplace, La. where he was attempting to purchase fuel in Laplace when the suspect fled the scene. It appears that the kidnap victims got the attention of the store clerk and she called the police. The suspect then carjacked the vehicle that was later found in Hammond where Hammond Police officers approached the vehicle.
Police in Hammond say Jones does have a criminal past, that involves mostly gun charges.
