Police say they arrested a South Carolina man Friday who is accused in the Oct. 12 death of 22-year-old Taylor Beverly and the shootings on Sunday of two people on East 15th Street.

D’Avondre Marquest Williams, 18, of Beaufort, South Carolina, was arrested Friday on a count of second-degree murder in the Beverly killing, along with a count of home invasion and two counts of attempted first-degree murder in the Nov. 16 shootings that hospitalized one man and a juvenile, Police Chief K.P. Gibson said.

Williams had been living in the Welsh area.

Another man, Damien Deshone Guidry, 34, of Welsh, is wanted on two counts of attempted first-degree murder and a count of home invasion, also in connection to the Nov. 16 shootings, Gibson said.

Investigators believe Williams and Guidry forced their way into the home on East 15th Street around midnight on Sunday and fired at the victims multiple times, Gibson said.

A third man arrested Wednesday is also accused participating in that shooting.

Aaronton Williams, 22, of Jennings, was booked on one count of principal to attempted first-degree murder and one count of principal to home invasion.

Authorities “believe that additional cases regarding the rash of recent shootings may be solved with these arrests,” Gibson said.

Both D’Avondre Williams and Aaronton Williams remain in Acadia Parish Jail each with bail set at $750,000, Gibson said. Once arrested, Guidry will be held in lieu of $1.5 million bail, Gibson said.

Guidry is described as a black man, 6 feet 3 inches tall and about 175 pounds with short hair, a dark complexion and multiple gold teeth, Gibson said. Although he lives in Welsh, police said, he has ties to Jennings and Crowley.

Anyone with information on Guidry’s whereabouts is asked to call the Crowley Police Department at (337) 783-1234 or the anonymous Crime Stoppers tip line at (337) 789-8477.

Man booked in armed robberies of businesses

Authorities said a Lafayette man arrested Thursday is believed to be responsible for five recent armed robberies in Opelousas, Sunset and Lafayette Parish.

Jeremy F. Moll, 29, was booked on four counts related to the Oct. 24 armed robbery of the Piggly Wiggly in Opelousas and the Oct. 26 armed robbery of the Dollar General in Sunset, said Sgt. Clay Higgins, spokesman with the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Police acting on a warrant found some of the stolen goods in Moll’s possession, along with a handgun consistent with one used in the robberies, Higgins said.

Moll also has been implicated in the Oct. 27 armed robbery of the Super 1 in Carencro, along with the Oct. 22 and Sept. 29 armed robberies of the Piggly Wiggly and Dollar Tree on Moss Street, police said.

Moll is being held at the St. Landry Parish jail without bail on two counts of armed robbery with a firearm, one count of aggravated criminal damage to property and one count of illegal discharge of a firearm.
