On February 11, the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a complaint of discharge of firearms on Eliza White Road in Angie. It was determined that two males in a Nissan Altima were firing at another male driving a GMC Denali. The male victim was not hit, but his vehicle had several gunshot holes.
The driver of the Nissan was identified as Tyrell Davon McGowan, 28, a resident of Military Road in Angie. McGowan was apprehended later that day in Bogalusa by Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives. He remains in the Washington Parish Jail charged with Attempted Second Degree Murder. His bond is set at $75,000.
The passenger in the Nissan was identified as Alonzo Traylor, 28, whose last known address was on Jones Creek Road in Varnado. Traylor fled the parish but is now in custody. A United States Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force located Traylor on March 1 in Mangum, Oklahoma, and arrested him on the Washington Parish warrant. He is now incarcerated there awaiting extradition to Louisiana on a charge of Attempted Second Degree Murder.
Sheriff Randy Seal commented on the capture of Traylor. “Our detectives work closely with the local United States Marshal’s Service Fugitive Task Force. They are a valuable resource in locating and apprehending fugitives who flee our jurisdiction. In this case, the Task Force was able to track Taylor to Oklahoma and arrest him there. We are grateful for their valuable assistance in this and other matters.”
