LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The Lake Charles Police Department is on the lookout for two suspects in connection to a shooting on June 3, according to Lt. Kevin Kirkum with LCPD.

Kirkum says officers responded to a call at approximately 8:25 p.m. in reference to a shooting at a residence in the 2700 block of Guy Street.

Upon arrival, officers found a 73-year-old male with multiple gunshot wounds. Officers learned that three suspects entered the residence, shot the man, and took an undisclosed amount of cash from the victim before fleeing.

Kirkum says LCPD's investigation found that Mildred Rashelle Goodly, 25, and Sidney Charles Bland, 32, were two of the suspects. The third suspect is still unknown at this time.

Arrest warrants were issued for Goodly and Bland on charges of attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery, and armed robbery with a firearm.

Goodly turned herself in around noon on Friday without incident, Kirkum says. 

Goodly's bond has been set at $850,000 and Bland's is $1.4 million.

Kirkum says the suspects should be considered armed and dangerous. He adds that anybody caught harboring or assisting them could be arrested and charged.

Kirkum urges anyone with information on the whereabouts of these suspects to contact Crime Stoppers at 337-439-2222 or the Lake Charles Police Department.

    The topic of a restaurant coming to Shell Beach Drive is officially over.  Last month applicant Mazen Hijazi brought the idea up to the Lake Charles planning and zoning board.  Hijazi wanted to transform a mansion on the street into a restaurant that would seat 150 people and create an event center for banquets and weddings.  Homeowners who lived along the street argued the restaurant would bring more traffic, safety concerns, and would create spot zoning. ...

    If you're driving on the I-10 bridge and look down, there's really not much to see besides the beach area and an abandoned casino parking garage.  But city leaders want to change that with new economic incentives that could help develop parts of the city.  "Coming that way I don't think anything would get me to stop," said resident Pat Broussard. "I don't see anything right there that would make me stop."   Broussard isn't the only person who...
