Shots fired in subdivision leads to arrest

A 22-year-old Simsboro male was arrested Tuesday morning after shots were fired at Green Lane Subdivision in Grambling.

Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office called Grambling Police Department in reference to shots fired at Green Lane. When the GPD lieutenant arrived, a male witness stated the shooting occurred between apartments 133 and 146. 

The lieutenant talked to one of the residents, who said she heard gunshots but had not seen the actual shooting.

Another resident stated his children came to his bedroom, woke him up and stated someone was knocking on the door. He instructed them to open the door, and then the suspect, Corvein Peevy, came in and indicated he was in trouble with other residents.

The male witness said he went to the female, and as he was talking, he heard gunfire. He said he hit the floor, protecting the children inside the apartment, until the gunfire ceased. He walked outside and then saw Peevy standing on his porch saying, “I got shot.” The male witness said he asked if Peevy needed to go to the hospital, but Peevy refused and stated he wanted to go to his sister’s house, so the witness took him there and returned home.

During the investigation, police also found a resident’s car had been damaged by bullets. 

LPSO advised GPD that a shooting victim had been located with two gunshot wounds. The victim was airlifted to Shreveport with non-life threatening injuries.

GPS made contact with Peevy where he had been dropped off, found a 9MM gun, and arrested Peevy. Peevy stated the shooting was in self-defense. He was charged with aggravated second degree battery and aggravated criminal damage to property.
