Argument over Video Games Leads to Family Shooting in Opelousas
An Opelousas man is behind bars after the suspect allegedly shot his own cousin during an argument over a Playstation at a home in the 1300 block of Artigue on July 8th.
In a press release, Opelousas Police say the male victim suffered serious injuries after being shot multiple times. His cousin - 23-year-old Quintaz Guillory - was identified quickly and found about a block away by officers minutes after they arrived on scene.
