"Armed, dangerous" suspect sought in Slidell murder
From the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office:
As a result of an active investigation into a shooting death early Sunday, the 22nd Judicial District Court has issued arrested warrants for 29-year-old Jules Johnson of Slidell.

Johnson is being sought for second degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office describes Johnson as someone who should be considered "armed and dangerous."

Johnson is being sought in an apparent homicide following an incident that occurred at a Slidell-area business early Sunday morning (May 19).

Shortly before 1:30 a.m. Sunday, STPSO deputies were dispatched to a business located off of Salmen Street near Slidell in reference to a shooting.

Upon arriving at the scene, deputies located one victim with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the head. The victim was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

STPSO Investigators are actively conducting interviews of witnesses and gathering information in an effort to identify and apprehend the perpetrator.

UPDATE: St. Tammany Parish Coroner Dr. Charles Preston has identified the man killed in an apparent homicide near Slidell early this morning as Melvin Webb, 43, of Hillcrest Dr., Slidell. An autopsy will be performed tomorrow, after which Preston will rule on cause and manner of death, but the case is being handled as a homicide.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jules Johnson is asked to call the STPSO at (985)898-2338 or contact Detective Crabtree at (985)726-7839.
