One man was reportedly shot by police following a police chase early Thursday morning.
Louisiana State Police, Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office and Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office assisted Monroe Police Department in a two-parish vehicle pursuit, which ended in the shooting of the suspect driver.
Shortly before 2:30 a.m. Thursday, officers with the Monroe Police Department attempted to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation when the suspect reportedly initiated a vehicle pursuit.
Lincoln Parish Sheriff Mike Stone said a few things are changing around the Lincoln Parish Detention Center since a prisoner escaped in late September.
It was initially reported that Moses Marcell Cooper, who was serving time on a robbery conviction, escaped the detention center sometime between midnight and 5 a.m. Sept. 27, and it appeared he had gotten out of the building and gone over the fence.
Further investigation has revealed, however, that Cooper left the facility as early as 5 p.m. Sept. 26, and Stone said no one knew the prisoner was missing until the morning of Sept 27.
