LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Two men and two women were indicted Thursday in connection with the drive-by shooting at a 12th Street home on March 10.

Giovannte J. Vallaire, Florita Marie Journet and Addie M. Vallaire, all of Lake Charles, and Jamar Jacoby Vallaire, of Texas, were indicted on charges of aggravated assault by drive-by shooting, aggravated criminal damage to property and illegal use of weapons.

The four were among the seven people arrested by city police in connection with the shooting.

City police spokesman Lt. Kevin Kirkum said the home was shot multiple times and hit by rocks.

"The victim said the suspects arrived at the home earlier in the day, looking for someone who (they thought) lived at the residence," Kirkum said in a news release. "(The suspects) did not believe the victim when they were told the person did not live there and went back later and committed the act."

The grand jury declined to indict the three others.

Phylicia N. Cormier, of Lake Charles, Earl M. Dauntain Jr., of New Iberia, and Renee Latrell Vallaire, of Texas, were arrested but not indicted. All three faced charges of aggravated assault by drive-by shooting, aggravated criminal damage to property and illegal use of weapons.
