There are more details on an officer-involved shooting earlier this week on Highway 3033
and Elkins Road in West Monroe earlier this week.
The man who the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office said was in the passenger side of that car was arrested for more drug charges.
William Underwood was arrested Friday when police served a warrant on him. Police say they allegedly found several small bags of meth, along with a loaded syringe and two digital scales
in his bedroom on Grimillion Lane in Monroe. Williams was also arrested Monday for having a small amount of drugs on him.
The man killed Monday was the driver, 22-year-old Marquinton t. Brooks of Monroe.
Louisiana State Troopers say Brooks tried to drive away during a traffic stop and in the process dragged a deputy who was hanging onto the vehicle.
At some point during the incident, one of the deputies fired his weapon, killing the suspect, Brooks.
That deputy’s name has not yet been released.
Louisiana State Police say the investigation is continuing.
Meanwhile, Underwood is now facing twelve drug charges and ten of them are felonies.
