It was a violent weekend in St. Tammany Parish.
The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office released details Saturday following a shooting that occurred Friday night, leaving one man dead and four other individuals injured. The investigation into this case is ongoing, as detectives continue to piece together the events of that evening.
Detectives are also working two more incidents that occurred Sunday evening.
Shortly before 11 p.m. Sunday evening, a resident at 26180 East Elm Street in Lacombe called 911 to report that she believed her ex-boyfriend, whom she had a protective order against, was a passenger in a pickup truck that had followed her home. Moments after that call, dispatchers received a call from another individual who was at the scene. That individual reported the 28-year-old victim had been shot.
She was transported to a local hospital, where she died from her injuries.
Shortly after, a patrol deputy located the pickup truck in question heading eastbound on Hwy 190 near Thompson Road. The deputy attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, but the truck gave chase, leading deputies on a pursuit to a residence at 511 Garrett’s Prime Run, Pearl River.
At this location, deputies detained the driver, Leslie Davis. The passenger, John Malveaux fled on foot, entered the residence and shot himself. John Malveaux (DOB 8/12/1981; 307 Drury Lane, Slidell) was later pronounced dead by medical personnel.
Leslie Davis (DOB 12/20/1961; 35387 Fleetwood Street, Slidell) has been charged with Principal to the Commission of a Crime - First-Degree Murder for his involvement in this crime. He was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail.
Detectives are investigating a third incident, which occurred shortly before 7:30 p.m. Sunday evening.
The victim in this case reported he was shot multiple times by individuals outside a residence at 57964 Jefferson Avenue in Slidell. He was transported to a Southshore Hospital, where he is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
This incident is still under investigation, and no suspects have been identified in this case.
The three incidents are unrelated.
“This was a tragic and violent weekend in St. Tammany,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “Our investigators will continue to work all of these cases until they are solved. We are using all of our resources to bring justice to the victims and their families.”
No further details will be released at this time. Additional information will be released as it becomes available.
