PINEVILLE, La. (KALB) - The Pineville Police Department has identified the person who was shot and killed on Wood Street on New Year’s Day but has stopped short of making an arrest in the case.

Police have identified the person who was killed as Damien McNally, 40, of Pineville. Police have also identified the other person involved but have not made an arrest. We were told they intend to send the case, once the investigation is complete, to the District Attorney’s Office for grand jury consideration. It will be up to the grand jury to decide if there will be criminal charges.

At around 4:30 p.m. on New Year’s Day, PPD responded to a trespassing call, when they heard shots ring out just a few hundred yards away. The officers were on Effie St. at the time, and the gunshots were coming from Wood St. When officers got to Wood St., they found McNally laying in the street with gunshot wounds, who later died from the injuries. There was another person at the scene who was taken into custody, however, we want to emphasize that this individual has not been arrested or charged with a crime.
