The Rapides Parish District Attorney's office is reporting the conviction of Ramonte Jackson for the May 7, 2021 shooting of David Paul, the owner/operator of Liberty Arsenal, just down the road from PawPaw's House. David's brother was also wounded in the crime. Jackson got Life w/o parole for Davide's murder and 50 years for his brother's shooting. These to be served consecutively.
I don't know the status of his co-defendants, but I'm fairly certain that prison time awaits. This was a senseless killing that took a good man from our community. I hope that this conviction provides at least partial closure to David's wife and brother.
