A suspect in a January 2022 shooting near El Sido's Nightclub in Lafayette has been arrested once again after Louisiana State troopers say DNA evidence links him to the crime.

KPEL News reported on a fight that broke out January 23rd in a nearby parking lot during which 19-year-old Leandre Guillory of Opelousas allegedly shot a gun. Fortunately, he didn't hit anyone. But a responding Lafayette Police officer didn't miss after Guillory allegedly pointed the gun at the officer.

The injured Guillory ran away but was caught a short time later and sent to the hospital to treat his injuries. He was then arrested after being released from the hospital and charged with Attempted 2nd Degree Murder in the initial shooting incident. He was later released from the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on bond.

The injured Guillory ran away but was caught a short time later and sent to the hospital to treat his injuries. He was then arrested after being released from the hospital and charged with Attempted 2nd Degree Murder in the initial shooting incident. He was later released from the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on bond.

A Glock handgun belonging to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office that was reported stolen from a department vehicle in December 2019 was found on the scene along the path Guillory took while running away from police. That Glock was forensically matched by the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab to the weapon fired during the fight in the parking lot. State Police say Guillory's DNA was also found on the stolen Glock.
