A third suspect has been arrested in connection with the April 16 fatal shooting of a Ruston man outside a Grambling nightclub.

Chadwick Ramone Jones, 29, of 214 Murline Drive in Grambling, was arrested Friday and charged with second-degree murder in the death of Willie Earl Patterson. Bond for Jones was set at $250,000.

The arrest affidavit lists Jones as a principal in the Patterson murder investigation.

Under Louisiana law, a person can be charged as a “principle” to murder if authorities suspect the individual was involved with the alleged crime whether or not they actually participated in the murder.

Jody Adolphus, 32, who resided at the same address as Jones, was formally charged with second-murder in the Patterson case in April.

Tyrone Lavell Singleton, 33, of 1221 Walter Road in Spearsville, also faces one count of second degree murder in Patterson’s death.

Patterson, 33, was reportedly shot several times in the upper torso outside Legends Nightclub, located at the corner of U.S. Hwy. 80 and R. W. E. Jones Drive, shortly before 1 a.m. April 16. Investigators believe Patterson was involved in fist fight with an unidentified male which ended in gunfire, Grambling Police Chief Tommy Clark said at the time.
