From the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office:

Charges Upgraded, Victim Identified

The victim in last week’s shooting incident in Livingston Parish has died as a result of his injuries.

Sheriff Jason Ard says, ‘Today, around noon, we learned the victim in this case died as a result of his injuries – multiple gun shot wounds. As a result of this new information, Meade will now be charged with Second Degree Murder in this case. The evidence and witness statements tell us this was not a random act. Detectives learned the suspect and the victim did argue earlier that day. That argument ended when the suspect drove to the victim’s location and fired his handgun multiple times in the victim’s direction. As a result, a life is lost and families have been shattered. Detectives are still working the case.’


The suspect - Michael Meade - remains in the Livingston Parish Detention Center.
