An Acadia Parish grand jury indicted two men on murder charges in the fatal shooting of an Acadia Parish 17-year-old.

Scott Allen Cooper, 41, of Church Point, and Robert Allen Moreno, 41, of Houston, were each indicted on a count of second-degree murder in the death of Garrison Cole Gautreaux, who was found suffering from a gunshot to the chest inside a vehicle in Rayne around 1 a.m. May 16. Officers found Gautreaux unresponsive and he died at the scene in the 100 block of East Louisiana Avenue, law enforcement said.

The teenager was a student at Notre Dame High School in Crowley.

Cooper and Moreno are each being held on a $5 million bond, according to online records for the Acadia Parish Jail.
