A Port Allen man is in critical condition after being shot Monday, November 11, and Port Allen Police have narrowed the shooter to one man.
Police are in search of Sidney Jarvis, 38, of Port Allen, for attempted second degree murder for the shooting which took place at or near his home at 1039 Ave. A.
Port Allen Police Chief Esdron Brown said that the victim, whose name was not released at the time of the West Side Journal’s deadline, and his brother went to Jarvis’ house where a confrontation began.
“The victim and his brother were parked in front of the house. Jarvis supposedly got into an altercation with them, or confronted them, and winded up shooting the guy in the stomach area.”
Brown said that the victim’s brother took him to the hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
“We’re looking for Sidney Jarvis for questioning,” Brown said. “He’s the numero uno suspect. Jarvis is the one accused of shooting.”
Brown said that investigators do not have a definitive reason why the shooting occurred.
“All we know is supposedly (the victim) was parked in the road, they got into a confrontation, (Jarvis) pulled out a gun and shot him.”
The shooting is still under investigation.
