Shameka is the sister of Shaterral Johnson who is the interim mayor of Grand Coteau.

Surlay Johnson, 34 who is the another sister of the mayor, was also stabbed and was in critical condition Wednesday night at Lafayette General Medical Center, as said by Guidroz.

Guidroz also said, “Sunset Police Officer Henry Nelson, 52, was shot and killed when he responded to the incident. Riley, who faces murder charges, is his cousin, the Associated Press reported. Riley was under arrest at a hospital Thursday”.

Courtney Jolivette, the suspect’s wife, was also been stabbed in the incident. Wednesday evening, she was taken to Alexandria Medical Center, where she was undergoing surgery.

The suspect appeared to be high on drugs, as said by police.

Guidroz said, after the stabbing and shooting on Anne Street, the suspect drove his car through the front of the store and barricaded himself inside an office.

Police used tear gas to try to flush the suspect out of the office.
