East Feliciana: State Police investigating deputy-involved shooting

East Feliciana deputy involved shooting

EAST FELICIANA —- A deputy-involved shooting in East Feliciana Parish on Mother’s Day is under investigation.

It happened around 7:40 p.m. in the 11000 block of Oakwood Ln., north of Clinton in East Feliciana Parish.

East Feliciana deputies responded to the same address roughly two weekends ago after Zachary Williams’ wife called saying Williams was allegedly behaving irrationally. Deputies attempted to get Williams to commit himself into a hospital, but he allegedly refused. That’s when the parish coroner responded to the home and signed an OPC, order of protective custody, that allowed deputies to transport him to a hospital. That is per a coroner’s job responsibilities.

Williams was released from the hospital and returned home to East Feliciana Parish.

On May 12, 2024, deputies took a call again from the wife. She told deputies that Williams allegedly had an AR-15 and was behaving irrationally again.

That’s when deputies responded to the address on Oakwood Ln. around 7:40 p.m. Williams is accused of pointing the rifle at the responding deputy, at which time an East Feliciana Sheriff’s deputy fired his weapon.

Williams was air lifted to a hospital and his current condition is unknown at this time. The deputy was not injured.

East Feliciana Sheriff Jeff Travis requested State Police to take over the investigation since it involved one of their deputies.

Anyone with information and/or pictures and video is urged to share that information with LSP Detectives. Citizens can anonymously report information through the Louisiana State Police online reporting system by visiting File a Report, or calling the LSP Fusion Center Hotline at 1-800-434-8007.

The deputy-involved shooting investigation in East Feliciana Parish is ongoing.
