Cotton Valley, La.— Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies took into custody last night four individuals accused of attempting to murder a Cotton Valley resident.

Bernell Rayshoun Lewis, Sr., 36, of Springhill was booked on charges for aggravated 2nd degree battery and principal to attempted 2nd degree murder.

Annie L. Lee, 52, of Springhill was charged with principal to attempted 2nd degree murder.

Nasasha McShea Lee, 25, of Springhill was charged with principal to attempted 2nd degree murder.

LaRaven J. Coleman, 29, of Springhill was charged with attempted 2nd degree murder.

The incident occurred after two o’clock a.m. Wednesday when a marital dispute began between Lewis and his wife in a Crow Street resident in Cotton Valley. According to reports, the two were arguing over an alleged affair of the victim’s.

Three of Lewis’ siblings joined him in the confrontation and after a glass window was shattered in the victim’s face the four perpetrators fled to their car, but fired shots with a .32 caliber semi-automatic weapon at the victim upon their exit.

According to reports, an all points bulletin was issued on the vehicle, which was soon discovered by Springhill Police inside the city limits of Springhill. Upon search of the vehicle, officers recovered the gun from the back seat and then took the four into custody.

“We hate to see this level of violence in our parish,” said Webster Sheriff Gary Sexton. “But when it does occur, I’m very grateful for the unity of law enforcement efforts we have here. Within two hours this case was closed. Thankfully no one was injured.”

All four individuals were transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center for booking.
