DeQuincy Primary lockdown ends peacefully

DeQuincy Police Dept.

Darren R. Bradshaw and Kodi L. Cline were arrested following a barricade incident at a home on Beech Street Wednesday, Mar. 15, authorities said.

DeQuincy police responded to a call of shots fired at 7:09 a.m., Capt. Tom Threet said.

DeQuincy Primary School was placed on lockdown out of precaution, said Holly Carter, Calcasieu Parish School Board spokeswoman. The lockdown was lifted later that morning.

Threet said that neighbors reported hearing several shots fired at the home. When officers arrived, they heard screaming from the home.

When the people inside the home would not come out, power was cut, Threet said. Bradshaw, 28, and Cline, 25, eventually came out without incident before 9 a.m.

Officers recovered a firearm at the scene and learned that it had been reported stolen from Sulphur and that both subjects were convicted felons. DeQuincy Police Dept. and Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office handled the call. DeQuincy Detective Doug Phillips is the lead investigator.
