PLAQUEMINE — Tammy Tullier has already lost one son and is now spending every minute in a hospital watching over her other son Dylan Tullier, 29, after he was shot multiple times last week.

“He took two bullets to the head and one into the wrist that came out of his finger,” said Tammy Tullier. “It’s like a horror story, something you would see in a horror movie on Lifetime.”

It was May 23 around 7:20pm on Crescent St. in Plaquemine when the shooting took place.

Iberville Parish Sheriff’s detectives said Adam Orellana, 37, of Zachary allegedly shot Tullier multiple times with a 22 pistol that had a silencer on it. Tullier was hit in the head and wrist.

Officials say they have a video that shows around 7:40pm, Orellana allegedly physically put Tullier in a car and left the scene for about two hours and later returned. Detectives say Orellana is accused of riding around with Tullier in the vehicle for those two hours. When he returned back to the home on Crescent St., Orellana is accused of leaving Tullier in a shed until deputies found him the next morning.

The next morning on May 24, two people, who officials say were inside the home on Crescent St., went to the Plaquemine Police Dept. to report Tullier being at the home.

Kaleb McGraw, 23, and his girlfriend Anna Williams, 21, of Sulphur, made the report to Plaquemine PD, but because the scene was outside of city limits, the case was forwarded to the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office.

IPSO said they received the case report at 7:33am on May 24. When deputies arrived at the home, they found Tullier, who was immediately transferred to a hospital. Deputies also found a woman named Calista Kocsis, 44, from Plaquemine, who officials say was outside the home at the time of the shooting. McGraw is Kocsis’ son.

Orellana was immediately arrested and charged. The other three were detained, questioned and released. Deputies added though, after they watched the video that captured the entire shooting, all three were arrested on the evening of May 24th and charged with accessory after the fact to attempted second degree murder.

Meanwhile, Tullier remains in a hospital slowly making some recovery, according to his mother.

“It’s hard. It’s been a long road. It’s hard to see him just lay there. He used to be a free spirit and now, this is hard to see him like this. I hope he goes back to who he was once but I know that’s going to be difficult especially with doctors saying he will suffer from some brain damage,” said Tullier.

His mother said Tullier should be celebrating his 30th birthday next month, not laying in a hospital, possibly with permanent damage from the shooting.

“One of my granddaughters called him by his nickname for him and he replied to her with, ‘Who is that?’ It broke my granddaughter’s heart but we are told some memory loss is normal with brain damage,” said his mother.

Tullier is expected to be moved out of the ICU and into a room within the coming days, which is a miracle in itself given he was shot in the head twice and did not get to a hospital till nearly 12 hours later.

Orellana remains locked up and charged with attempted second degree murder, aggravated kidnapping, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, obstruction of justice and illegal carrying of a weapon.

His bond is set at $425,000.

The other three have since bonded out.
