WMPD: Trio shot at Domino's Pizza driver as part of West Monroe robbery plot
A West Monroe man was arrested Thursday and charged with four counts of attempted second-degree murder for his alleged part in a robbery plot that involved firing upon anyone who came into the neighborhood.
According to court records, West Monroe police were called to the 100 block of Filhiol Avenue on July 1, 2019, after a reported shooting.
Police say a Domino's Pizza delivery driver was making a delivery when someone opened fire on her vehicle. She was not hurt, but her vehicle was hit several times. Police say they found 20 spent 223 Remington shell casings at the scene.
Police also learned of other shootings that happened in the same area.
According to court records, 30-year-old Kevin Swan was identified as one of three people involved in these shootings.
Police say these suspects met in jail and began planning and committing robberies. Police say since the suspects are always robbing people, they shoot at any vehicles or people who come into their neighborhood to stop any possible retaliation.
Attempted murder warrants filed for two of the other suspects, James Michael Brown Jr., (AKA "JJ") and Daularrius Braiel Selders, cite another incident that happened on July 7, 2019. In that incident, police say someone shot at a car that was on South 2nd and turned east on Filhiol. Police say the driver was injured in the head by broken glass from the vehicle's window.
The documents also state that the suspects are also responsible for giving firearms to multiple juveniles throughout the south side of West Monroe.
Police say one suspect shot at the Domino's driver with an AR-15 style firearm.
According to arrest records, Swan was spotted by officers at the A-1 Mart on Coleman Avenue on July 18. Police say Swan ran, but they were able to catch him.
Swan was booked into the Ouachita Correctional Center on four counts of attempted second-degree murder, resisting an officer, and possession of marijuana. Brown and Selders are also wanted on attempted murder charges.
