One of two suspects wanted in a Bailey Street shooting Saturday has turned himself in to police.

Donald R. Henix, 26, of the 700 block of Sims Street, was arrested by Minden Police Lt. Chris Cheatham Tuesday afternoon on a warrant for attempted second-degree murder, Police Chief Steve Cropper said.

Bond was set at $100,000.

Cropper says once Henix was taken into custody, he was questioned about the shooting.

“They talked to him about his brother, but he did not reveal his brother’s whereabouts,” he said. “He tried to indicate to detectives that he was solely responsible, and his brother didn’t have anything to do with it. He also indicated that it was self defense.”

Corey Henix is also wanted for attempted second-degree murder, and police are still trying to locate him, the chief said.

He is believed to be in the Shreveport area.

Cheatham said the incident occurred around 5 p.m., when a verbal altercation between Donald Henix and Dewey Coleman escalated to the point guns were drawn and chased Coleman down the road.

Coleman was shot multiple times.

Detectives say an ongoing feud among the three has gone on for quite some time but never become physical. Cheatham says during the investigation, they learned both brothers had guns in their possession at the time of the shooting, and both were allegedly shooting at Coleman.

Cropper says Coleman is expected to recover.

If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of Corey Henix, call the Minden Police Department at 371-4226.
