Suspect surrenders after man, 86, found shot dead near home
BAYOU BLACK, La. (AP) — A suspect has been taken into custody after an 86-year-old man was found shot to death outside his home in Bayou Black.
Local media outlets report that the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office says 21-year-old Deandre Pharagood turned himself in to Thibodaux police Wednesday night.
Maj. Malcolm Wolfe says Pharagood, of Thibodaux, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Anthony Dale Lirette.
Deputies say Lirette's body was found in his driveway Friday morning. A motive has not been released.
It's immediately unclear whether Pharagood has an attorney.
