OUACHITA PARISH, La. (KNOE) - Another arrest has been made in connection with the murder of Edgar Lewis in Ouachita Parish.

According to the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office, Al Dewayne Glover reported the shooting of Lewis in the 100 block of Blackwood Drive on Dec. 7, 2019.

Authorities say Glover saw someone walk up to the victim outside and shoot him in the head. Lewis later died. They say Glover stated that he did not know who the shooter was and there were no other witnesses to the shooting.

Other witnesses said they were at the scene and said Chauncey Bluford stopped by the house at the time of the shooting. Authorities say Glover continued to deny he knew the identity of the shooter and also denied the presence of any other witnesses.

Authorities say Bluford was eventually arrested for Lewis' murder, but not before being involved in another shooting in which he was charged with attempted murder. That shooting occurred in Monroe in the 1100 block of Richwood Road #2 on Dec. 28, 2019.

Authorities say Glover's failure to identify the shooter delayed Bluford's arrest.

Glover was booked on a charge of felony obstruction of justice. Bond is listed at $750,000.00.
