LCPD still searching for the second suspect in Thursday's shooting

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A shooting in the 600 block of North Cherry Street in North Lake Charles left many questions unanswered. Who was the shooter?

"This morning at 3:45 a.m. we did make an arrest in this case," LCPD Chief of Police Don Dixon said.

Dixon said LCPD arrested 27-year-old Lionel Jacobi Ruben for the shooting. Ruben was charged with first degree murder and attempted first degree murder. His bond set at $1.5-million. But Dixon said they are still on the lookout for a second suspect.

"Keep in mind now that we have a shooter who shot a 62-year-old unarmed female and an unarmed male. And killed the male and attempted to kill the female," Dixon said. "Anybody capable of that is capable of anything. Also in the house was a 7-year-old and a 3-year-old juvenile. By the grace of God they were not injured."

By increasing patrols, Dixon said the area is well monitored, but still asking for the public's help in locating the second shooter.

"So if you have an knowledge of who this other person is and you don't report it, shame on you. You're part of the problem and not part of the solution," Dixon said.

If you have any information on the second shooter or on this case in general, contact Lake Charles Police.
