Persons of interest sought

The Morgan City Police Department is seeking help in locating two persons of interest involved in a shooting Thursday at the Shannon Homes on Terrebonne Street in Morgan City, according to Chief Marc Folse.

—Bryson Skinner is described as a black male, 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 132 pounds.

—Clauderious Darby is described as a black male, 6 feet tall and weighing 163 pounds.

According to witnesses at the scene, Bryson Skinner, Clauderious Darby, and two other subjects were arguing in the street with another subject. As the argument intensified, Bryson is alleged to have pulled a gun from his waistband and fired a shot near the subject. The gun then jammed, and Clauderious Darby, 23, a convicted felon from Morgan City, took the gun from Skinner and attempted to fire another shot.

After Darby’s attempt was unsuccessful, Skinner, Darby and two other subjects, one of which was identified as Brennan Skinner, left in a vehicle travelling westbound on Terrebonne Street.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office located the vehicle in Siracusaville but could not locate any of the subjects.

Investigators previously stated the motive for the shooting was an argument over a female acquaintance.

The investigation continues.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Darby or Bryson Skinner or who has further information about the shooting is asked to contact MCPD at 380-4605 or any local law enforcement agency.
