ARCADIA, LA (KSLA) - Drugs and retaliation possibly were the motives for a recent shooting that landed an Arcadia man in a Shreveport hospital and 3 other people in jail, Bienville Parish's sheriff says.

Ladarrius "Ball Champion" Coleman, 24, of Arcadia, remained in fair condition May 3 at University Health, a hospital spokesman said.

Bienville authorities found Coleman lying unconscious on Wire Road just outside Arcadia early the morning of April 23, according to Sheriff John Ballance's office.

Early indications were that he had been beaten. Upon his arrival at the hospital, however, it was determined that Coleman had been shot in the head.

Ballance would not say whether a gun has been recovered.

Six days after the shooting, investigators arrested 2 men and a woman and charged each with one count of attempted second-degree murder.

"We are looking at one other individual but are not sure of his role," the sheriff said May 3.

Booked into Bienville Parish Jail in Arcadia on April 29 were Lynn T. Clark, 26, of Ruston, and Zachary Phillip Raburn, 23, of Arcadia.

India Diann Feazel, 22, of Arcadia, is being held in the Claiborne Parish Jail in Homer.

Bond has been set at $500,000 for each of the three.
