Alexandria woman arrested for drive-by shooting
The Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office has arrested an Alexandria woman for a drive-by shooting. Jasmine Monique London, 21, was arrested after three females were found shot in a yard on Valerie Drive off of LA Hwy 28 West.
The call of a possible drive by shooting came around 10:45 p.m. on Tuesday night. RPSO was told that two vehicles drove up in front of a home where three females were standing outside and shots came from one of the vehicles, wounding all three of the females.
RPSO found the three females lying in the yard, all suffering from a gunshot wound. All three victims were transported to a local hospital for treatment and, at this time, are all in good condition.
Through investigation, detectives learned that the victims became upset with the suspects due to social media posts. They began arguing through text messages which escalated into threats of violence and physical contact.
Following the threats, the suspects went to the victims’ home where the shooting happened.
Early Wednesday morning, deputies and members of the US Marshals Violent Offender Taskforce located London and arrested her without incident. She was transported to the Criminal Investigations Division for further investigation. Her vehicle was impounded by Sheriff's Crime Scene Detectives as part of the investigation.
London was booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center for three counts of attempted 1st degree murder, assault by drive-by shooting, criminal conspiracy and obstruction. At this time, no bond has been set on these charges.
The remaining suspects have yet to be caught. Sheriff's detectives have worked through the night in an attempt to locate and arrest the suspects involved in this incident. Detectives say their investigation is continuing Wednesday morning and more arrests are pending.
If anyone has any further information on this incident, they are asked to contact the RPSO Criminal Investigation Division at 318-473-6727.
