(3/28/19) UPDATE:

The Bienville Parish Sheriff’s Department has made another arrest in connection with the March 3, 2019 drive-by shooting.

Arlondo Iverson, 20, of Crestview Street in Minden has been arrested. Iverson turned himself in shortly after noon on Wednesday March 27, 2019 after learning there was an active warrant for his arrest.

Iverson is accused of shooting at a vehicle on Blacksmith Road which was occupied by three adults and two minor children prior to the drive-by shooting. Two of the occupants of the vehicle, Isaiah Fritz Walter and Kenquan Mayfield, are currently incarcerated for their roles in the retaliatory drive-by shooting.

Iverson was charged with five counts of attempted first degree murder and is being held in the Bienville Parish Jail under a $1,000,000 bond.

Deputies say the investigation continues into the drive-by shooting and the November 2018 shooting death of Shanette Carter that occurred at Bienville 1 Apartments in Ringgold.

Investigators believe that both incidents are connected and believe that one or more of the individuals arrested thus far are involved in the homicide or have knowledge of the events surrounding the homicide.

“I was awakened by gunfire my boyfriend came into our bedroom and he told me to get down,” said victim Brittni Boston. 

Scary moments Boston recalls after her home was shot up Sunday night. 

“I didn’t see my kids, ‘I’m screaming where are my kids.’ Glass had fallen all over our floor and they are screaming someone is shooting someone is shooting,” said Boston. 

Bienville Parish deputies arrested 20-year-old Isaiah Walter. 
Deputies say the shooting was an act of retaliation for an incident that killed an innocent bystander back in November.
Walter was wounded in that shooting,a nd deputies believe Sunday he was firing back at the suspected shooter who was in the area. 
Senseless violence Walter’s family said needs to end. 

“Bullets don’t have no names on them and somebody could have got hurt. I need everybody to know the violence needs to stop and my cousin is a good kid,” said suspect’s cousin Raquel Woods. 

Deputies don’t believe Walter acted alone and neither does his family. 
A warrant has been issued for Kenquan Mayfield. 

“I feel the person who like that person who was driving the car is just as guilty as the shooters,” said Woods.  

Walter’s cousin said his mother turned him in and any others involved need to do the same. 

Everybody taking it hard right now. It’s hard on all of us right now.”

“It’s hurts me to my heart that this lady has to go through this, because she don’t bother nobody and her boyfriend don’t bother nobody.”

Walter is charged with nine counts of attempted first degree murder. 
He’s being held on a one million dollars bond.
