One dead, one jailed in Sunset fight

A 20-year-old man from Sunset has been booked into jail in the Thursday night death of a man he had been fighting before allegedly pulling a gun and shooting the victim in the chest, KATC-TV reported Friday.

Jed Guidroz was persuaded by his parents to surrender to authorities, KATC said, and was booked by Sunset police on one count of second-degree murder.

The victim was identified as Stefan Lemelle, a 35-year-old man from Opelousas.

Officers and deputies with the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office were unsuccessful in resuscitating Lemelle, and he was pronounced dead at the scene, the TV station reported.

Police said Guidroz and Lemelle were fighting on East Martin Luther King Drive about 7:50 p.m. when Guidroz allegedly pulled a gun.

The investigation continues.
