BOYCE, La. (KALB) - Two adults and three juveniles have been arrested following a driveby shooting incident that occurred on Saint Clair Road in Boyce on April 20, 2022.

The Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office said Chad Phillip Price, Jr., 18 of Marksville, was arrested for one count of attempted first-degree murder. He was also arrested for outstanding warrants through Avoyelles Parish for one count of theft, one count of simple burglary and one count of criminal conspiracy.
