PRAIRIEVILLE, La. (AP) - Ascension Parish deputies say a man sought in a fatal shooting in the early morning hours on Christmas Eve turned himself in

Chief Deputy Tony Bacala tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1rnLqmE ) 23-yeara-old Kevin Sheppard, of Prairieville, was booked on counts of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, and several other charges.

Sheppard surrendered Wednesday around 10 a.m.

Bacala says it’s believed Sheppard and four other men were in Prairieville to buy narcotics, about 2 a.m. Wednesday.

He says an argument broke out and Sheppard, who was not directly involved in the argument, allegedly pulled out a handgun and began firing.

One man, 22-year-old Lewis Sanchez, Denham Springs, was killed, and 18-year-old Joshua Perez, of Gonzales, was seriously wounded.

It was unclear whether Sheppard has an attorney.
