Solitude bar closes after killings

Aug 10, 2010 Full story: www.2theadvocate.com 24

A Solitude Road bar where two people were killed in separate shootings less than nine months apart is closed and may not reopen, West Feliciana Parish Sheriff J. Austin Daniel said Monday.

Daniel said the decision to close Gerri’s Blues Club on Solitude Road was decided by the owner of the property and the person who held a license to operate the bar.

“The lease was about up,” the sheriff said.

Daniel said Christopher Blalock, 18, 3831 Church St., Jackson, died in the parking lot of the lounge after being shot in the head shortly after 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

His alleged assailant, Damien Duncan, 22, 5476 Blackmore Road, St. Francisville, remained hospitalized in critical condition after undergoing surgery for gunshot wounds to his head and leg, Daniel said.

The sheriff said detectives believe that another Blackmore Road resident punched Blalock immediately before the shooting started, and deputies were looking for that man Monday.

Detectives estimated the shooting victims were about 15 feet apart when they began firing. They also believe Duncan fired first, Daniel said.

On Dec. 26, Terrence J. Brooks, 21, of Hardwood, was killed by gunfire at the bar, and Eric Martin, 23, of Ethel, was later indicted for second-degree murder in the shooting.

I just have a quick question..I'm no genious nor am I an investigator, but if one man is shot in the chest twice and dies and the other is shot in the head multiple times and dies. How could they have shot each other?? If a person is shot in the head, chances are that they will not still be standing or conscience for that matter and the same with the chest.I think this is just a quick way to close the case without the WFPSO having to do their work.

Just because a person is shot in the chest it does not mean they immediatly become incapacitated and die. Im sure if you contact the WFPSO and voice your concerns they will be happy to tell you how many hours they put into an investigation and will be happy to listen to any suggestion you may have

Since you are so observant and think others slack at their job, maybe you should go pick an application.

To "just curious" I agree with u! What u said makes plenty of sense! And maybe u should go pick up an application, u just might be able to do their work and construct a proper investigation!

And big deal is wrong for saying what it said and karma is a b**** and he will get his one day but you calling people a cracka is being racist also... All I'm saying is is 2 wrongs don't make a right. And you saying that you going to put a " cap " in someone, I mean what is that? Why you wanna shoot someone cause they a dumb azz.

Joe said,'Hey friend, the earlier poster said they are happy the two African American gentlemen shot each other. I beg your pardon. What caucasian person wants to be shot in their head? Caucasian m***** f*****.' Later on, he said 'Big Deal said he was happy the two gentlemen were shot and died. Why? He is a racist.'
I hope this translation helps.

race has nothing to do with this conversation. if 2 thugs that are white want to shoot each other up at the club I say go for it as long as nobody innocent gets shot.
these guys are thugs that brought guns to a bar fight....sorry I'm not felling bad for them but I could care less that they are dead....normal citizens do not fight with guns at the bar,,,,get it now?

Im sayin he was brought into a situation he knew nuthing about his friend was into it with the boys one hit him in the face so they got to fighting a group of boys jumped on him and one started shooting at his friend he got a gun out of the truck and shot back it was more than him and duncun shooting but no witnesses will come forward he was in the wrong place at wrong time so learn all the facts before u make remarks like that and now days you need to pack a gun if you want to be safe or protect your family!!!So word of advice dont wish something on someone cuz it will come back to haunt you!!!
