Pair arrested after standoff near Galvez Middle

ASCENSION PARISH — The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested two men after a standoff that put Galvez Middle School on lockdown Friday morning.

APSO deputies arrested Steve Paul, 39, and charged him with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Deputies also arrested and charged Keyo Dunn, 34, with armed robbery, resisting arrest, and possession of fentanyl.

Officials say the incident began at around 7:30 a.m. Friday at the corner of Hwy. 933 and Marty Low Rd. Deputies say it all started with a traffic stop on a vehicle with two people in it.

Officials say Paul exited the vehicle and was arrested pending a warrant but Dunn refused to get out of the vehicle. Dunn was wanted on armed robbery charges in Plaquemine.

Authorities say the APSO crisis response team and negotiators were called for assistance but Dunn refused to cooperate. The response team used tear gas in the car to get Dunn out and he was taken into custody without further incident. He was transported to a local medical facility for evaluation.

The sheriff’s office says the school was placed on lockdown as a precaution and the lockdown ended before noon Friday.
