Shooting suspect turns himself in
A Minden man wanted for attempted second-degree murder turned himself in to the Minden police Wednesday night.
Malik Hill, 20, reportedly shot a man through the back of the neck Monday night in a residence on N. Middle Landing Street. The victim was awake when officer Chris Hammontree of the Minden Police Department arrived on the scene. The victim was able to give Hamontree Hill’s first name when asked to identify his assailant.
Police Chief Steve Cropper said the victim survived the wound, as the bullet “barely missed his carotid artery.”
According to the victim, an argument had taken place between Hill and him prior to the shooting.
Cropper said Hill’s attorney promised that she would bring Hill to the police, and Wednesday evening Hill turned himself in, accompanied by the attorney. Hill was arrested and brought to an interview room to be advised of his rights. Hill said he did not want to talk to the police.
Hill was transported to the Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center, where he is being held on a $400,000 bond.
