Original story:
Two men are wanted after a Ruston shooting Monday evening on Lewis Street was caught on cell phone video.

Troydarious Grimsley is wanted for Attempted Second Degree Murder.

Lawrence Williams is wanted for Illegal Carrying of a Weapon.

After seeing the viral video of the shooting, Cullen Clark, who works next door to the neighborhood could not believe what he was seeing.

"Shocking, I guess would be the best way to put it," says Clark.

However, Clark says the video is not an accurate representation of the neighborhood.

"Not at all. I drive by there probably 10 times a day, so that's a first. I mean, there's a park over there. There's a playground. Kids are out. So, no."

What happened right across the road leaves him uneasy.

"I know things like that go on everywhere, but I hope they catch them soon."

Chief Deputy for Ruston Police, Clint Williams, says he is hoping Grimsley and Williams turn themselves in.

"We encourage them to turn themselves in at this point. We want them to have a fair hearing and have their day in court."

If anyone has seen Troydarious Grimsley or Lawrence Williams, or has information on the shooting, they are asked to report to Ruston Police or Crimestoppers.
