An incident at a convenience store in Calcasieu Parish results in attempted second-degree murder charges for three people.
KPLC-TV is reporting it happened just before 7:00 pm Sunday at the More for Less on Broad Street.
Deputies say when officers arrived, they found one man on the ground unconscious and another man shot, and a third subject bleeding from being cut with a machete. Deputies say 19-year-old Matthew Taylor Simien entered the store and stole items. As Simien left the business, both the store's manager, Amirik Thind, and a clerk, Dilrajpal Singh, allegedly chased after Simien. Once outside, deputies say the employees confronted Simien and 19-year-old Quincy Paul Landry.
Deputies say a fight broke out among the men, resulting in one man being beaten unconscious with a wooden stick, two men cut with a machete and a third subject being shot.
Deputies say three of the four men required emergency medical treatment from local hospitals. Two of the three subjects were treated for minor injuries and released. Deputies say Landry, who was found unconscious on the ground when officers arrived, is still hospitalized in a local intensive care unit.
Kraus said Thind, 39, and Singh, 24, both of Sulphur, were booked on one count of attempted second-degree murder each while Simien, of Lake Charles, was booked on charges of theft of goods and attempted second-degree murder.
All three were booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center. Simien's bond was set at $451,000. Bonds for Thind and Singh were set at $300,000 each.
