A woman has been charged with murder after a Sunday morning shooting on Cypress Street in Alexandria.

Alexandria Police Department officers responded to a local hospital around 3:45 a.m. on Sept. 8 in reference to two people being admitted with gunshot wounds. Once officers arrived, they learned that four people had been shot. One of the victims, a 26-year-old woman, was later pronounced deceased.

APD says the shooting took place in the 2900 block of Cypress Street as part of a continuation of an earlier fight from the previous evening. The altercation had progressed over several hours and multiple locations, including the 2800 block of Harris Street, a bar outside the city limits in the 7500 block of US-71 and a convenience store in the 4400 block of Lee Street.

Detectives identified a suspect in the shooting as Natashia Jackson, 27, of Alexandria.

Jackson was located at her home and arrested following an interview with APD detectives. She was charged with second-degree murder and booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center.

The case is still being actively investigated, and no further information is available. The name of the deceased is not being released at this time.
