(9/9/2019, 1000 hrs) A woman has been charged with murder in a shooting that took place early Sunday morning on Cypress Street. Alexandria Police Department officers responded to a local hospital around 3:45 AM to a report of two people being admitted with gunshot wounds. Once officers arrived, they learned that four people had been shot, one of whom—a 26-year-old woman—was later pronounced deceased.

Investigators determined the shooting took place in the 2900 block of Cypress Street, and was a continuation of an earlier fight from the night before. The altercation had progressed over several hours and multiple locations, including the 2800 block of Harris Street, a bar outside the city limits in the 7500 block of US-71, and a convenience store in the 4400 block of Lee Street.

Detectives identified a suspect in the shooting as Natashia Jackson. Jackson was located at her home and brought to APD Headquarters to be interviewed. Following the interview, detectives charged Jackson with Second Degree Murder, and she was booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center. The case is still being actively investigated, and no further information is available. The name of the deceased is not being released at this time.
