$20K reward being offered for arrest of rural area drive-by shooter

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest for a string of fatal shootings.

Multiple agencies are working on the case that now spans two parishes and includes four victims. All of the victims were struck during drive-by shootings.

The task force of investigators includes the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office, the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, the Louisiana State Police, the FBI, and the US. Marshal's Office.

The four cases include similarities that have caused some to use the word "serial killer," but authorities say they are too early in the investigation to make that kind of determination.

"I think it's a little early right now to say that but what we are doing is looking at all of the cases individually and collectively and as we move through this investigation," said East Feliciana Parish Sheriff Jeff Travis. "I know that they are on edge and we are working day and night, people are working day and night and doing everything we possibly can do to resolve and solve the crimes."

Officials with Crime Stoppers confirms it is providing $5,000 and that an independent organization is providing an $15,000 reward.

If you know anything that can help investigators solve this case, call Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
