VERMILION PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Two more Abbeville residents have been arrested in connection with the death of Allen Bares Jr., an off-duty Vermilion Parish sheriff's deputy who was shot Monday afternoon.

State police spokesman Stephen Hammons said Quintygi Jewel Richard, 24, and Miguel Andre Comeaux, 28, were arrested Tuesday night on charges of accessory after the fact to first-degree murder.

Quintygi Richard and Comeaux have been accused of helping Quintylan Richard, 20, avoid capture following the shooting.

Quintylan Richard and Baylon Taylor, 19, were arrested Monday night on charges of first-degree murder of a police officer, unauthorized use of a movable and burglary.

Authorities said Bares was mowing grass when he spotted a suspicious vehicle and reported it to the Sheriff's Office. When other deputies arrived on the scene, they found Bares shot multiple times.

Hammons said Quintylan Richard and Taylor burglarized a home shortly before the shooting and stole Bares' vehicle.

Bares, who had been in law enforcement for more than 12 years, was transported to an Alexandria hospital where he died. He is survived by his wife and two children.
