(KTAL/KMSS) Three additional arrests have been made in connection with a Sunday-evening drive-by shooting in early March just south of Ringgold, according to Bienville  Parish Sheriff.

Jelisa Drew, 24, Kenny Antonio Brown, 37, and Dasjuan Jalik Reed, 18, are in custody, joining Isaiah Fritz Walter, 20, and Kenquan Mayfield, who was captured March 13 in Radcliff, Kentucky, and is awaiting extradition back to Bienville Parish.

Around 6 p.m. on March 3, Bienville Parish deputies responded shooting reports from a residence on Blacksmith Road, where victims reported a vehicle occupied by at least two black males had fired numerous gunshots in their direction. 

An investigation revealed that at least two different firearms had been fired into a parked car and the residence. One round traveled through a window, narrowly missing three children. 

BPSO detectives developed information that led to the arrest of Walter, of Ringgold, who was charged with nine counts of attempted 1st degree murder. A second suspect, Mayfield, also a Ringgold resident, was captured March 13 by the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force, after he was found hiding in the attic of his mother’s Kentucky residence. 

Then, on March 20, BPSO investigator, Sgt. Doug Worley, obtained arrest warrants for six more suspects, three of whom Drew, Brown and Reed were arrested over the weekend by the Ringgold Police Department. 

Drew, of Ringgold, was arrested Friday on a warrant charging her with accessory after the fact of attempted first degree murder. She is accused of assisting Mayfield in eluding capture by giving him a ride from Ringgold to his sister’s home in Coushatta.  

On Saturday Brown, of Ringgold, was arrested on a warrant charging him with accessory after the fact of attempted first degree murder. He is accused of taking Mayfield from Coushatta to the bus station in Alexandria, where he purchased a bus ticket to Louisville, Kentucky for Mayfield. 

Finally, on Saturday Reed (aka Da-Da) of Ringgold was arrested on a warrant charging him with obstruction of justice. On the day of the shooting, Reed allegedly removed weapons that had been used in the drive-by.  

Bonds for Walter and Mayfield are set at $1 million, while Drew’s is set at $100,000, Brown’s is set at $500,000; and Reed’s is set at $1 Million.
