SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - The 26-year-old Lake Charles man accused in two shooting incidents this weekend is facing additional charges.

El Jerico Jermiah Bartie was arrested Saturday night following a standoff at a Sulphur hotel.

The Lake Charles and Sulphur police departments said Bartie fired multiple shots at them, after they tried to serve him a warrant in connection with a drive-by shooting Friday afternoon on Cline Street in Lake Charles.

Bartie gave up after a 30-minute standoff and was charged with attempted second-degree murder, assault by drive-by shooting and illegal use of dangerous instrumentalities in connection with the drive-by shooting that left one man injured.

On Monday, Sulphur police charged Bartie with additional charges from the hotel incident. Those charges are: eight counts of attempted first-degree murder of a police officer, four counts of attempted manslaughter, aggravated second-degree battery, illegal possession of a stolen firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, unlawful use or possession of body armor and false imprisonment.

Bartie is being held on a $2.6 million bond.

According to authorities, Bartie intentionally shot his wife, 25-year-old Katie Marie Mancil, during the incident at the hotel.

Mancil was treated and released from a local hospital and later arrested on a charge of accessory after the fact to attempted second-degree murder.

Mancil's bond was set at $250,000.

Amber Trahan, 22, was arrested Friday night in connection with the drive-by shooting. She has been charged with attempted second-degree murder, assault by drive-by shooting and illegal use of dangerous instrumentalities.

Bond for Trahan was set at $1.1 million.
