Alexandria Town Talk Reporting Today..........
Three people face charges stemming from a shooting in Natchitoches on Wednesday that injured two people and from drugs confiscated during the investigation.

According to a news release, the shootings were the result of a drug deal gone bad. Christopher Washington, 17, of 200 Willow Bend Drive, Apt. 14, in Natchitoches allegedly attempted to rob two victims of drugs and money, according to the release. Two people -- Joseph Metoyer, 24, and Onterio Pier, 17 - suffered gunshot wounds. Both were treated at Natchitoches Regional Medical Center.

Washington was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of attempted armed robbery and one count of attempted armed robbery with a firearm. He is in the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center awaiting bond.

During the investigation, a search warrant was obtained for the residence of Metoyer. Suspected marijuana, crack cocaine, hydrocodone syrup, money and drug paraphernalia was found, according to the report.

Police arrested Justin Metoyer, 20, and charged him with two counts of obstruction of justice, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, crack cocaine and hydrocodone syrup, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting an officer. He also was placed in the detention center and awaits bond.

A second Joseph Metoyer, 75, was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, crack cocaine and hydrocodone syrup, possession of drug paraphernalia and keeping/maintaining a dwelling where narcotics are used and/or sold. He was released from the detention center because of health reasons.

I've known Mr. Joe every since I can remember.The charges against this man are false.He was charged because he own the property and he knew nothing of that little hard headed grandsons action or socall actions.

I agree with you. It would seem that normally they would not arrest the property owner unless they really thought he had something to do with it. It's an election year and they have to be careful not to show any favoritism. On the other hand, if they did not arrest him, people would gripe about that, too.

I have known me Joe for years. Being the kind of man he is I believe he didn't know any of this was going on. But I will be willing to bet he will take the fall for it if it will get his grandson off. Just my opinion.

Get the drug dealers off the street. Lock up lawbreakers whoever they are, black or white, rich or poor. Our society is being flushed down the toilet by the politicians in the name of political correctness. What a crock .... The rights of law abiding citizens are being yanked out from under us like a cheap tablecloth because of lowlifes who think they can get away with criminal activites in the name of poverty. I don't give a s@@t how poor you are you can't/shouldn't get way with breaking the law. The biggest concern I see here is "someone was set-up" They're criminals. Who cares if they were set up?

The law does not have a gray area.If he owns the property he is charged but it does not mean he is guilty.That's just the way it goes!At 75 with failing health, I don't think he went there everyday or even every week.Some people love there grand kids unconditionally and most likely he will take any charge presented.Really, you would have to know this man and his history to know he had nothing to do with drugs period.That's all I can really say.Now as for that silly grandson of his, I don't even know.Were in different age groups.I'm knocking 45 so I do not know him period.

Locking them up won't help, you got more drugs in
the lock up than they have on the streets the only thing that is
different is, they don't have to watch their backs, the officers do it for them. Using the slogan "fighting drug crimes" is a bunch of crock, this drug haven. Who do you THINK is gonna stop it?

Mr. Metoyer was a friend and a classmate of mine at NSU (majoring in social work). He was a hardworking, kind person. I absolutely believe he is innocent until PROVEN guilty...I am praying for him. Please do not judge people until you have all the facts, and until justice is done.

I find it very hard to believe that "Poor Joe" is innocent. How can a man live in an apartment, with young people, the young people operate an illegal busines out of the apartment, and "Poor Joe" not know about it? I have a feeling this is one Vic will not be able to slide under the table.

More drugs in lock up than on the streets? Didn't "Poor Joe" work at the detention center? Interesting. A drug operation out of his apartment and drugs in the detention center? Might be worth looking into....

Read the article correctly. "Mr. Joe" doesn't live in an apt. The shooter lives in an apt. "Mr. Joe" lives in a house that the police got a search warrant on. It is VERY possible that at 75 he had no idea what the idiot grandkids had in the house. Sad....those damn kids never learned to respect their elders or what didn't belong to them. They should be the 1st people to say their grand dad had NO idea what was in the house and get him off the hook. Shaking my head in disgust.

Wow you really think a guy on an oxygen tank that he brings to work with him,is helping to sale drugs?? Idiot! And its a house they live in, thats another thing. The SHOOTING happened at the 'apartments', mr. Metoyer lives in the house where joseph drove home to. Thats aanother thing , get the story straight!!

The police have been to his house atleast five times dealing with those kids from burglaries to drugs! Any normal person with sense would know whats going on in their own home!
