On November 08, 2022, at approximately 6:00 p.m., officers with the Morgan City Police Department responded to the area of Federal Ave. and Orange St. regarding a report of gunfire in the area. Officers patrolled the area and did not locate anything, or anyone that had been struck.

During the shift, officers patrolled these areas due to the earlier reports of gunfire. While in the area at around 7:50 p.m., a patrol officer observed gunfire coming from a vehicle in the area of Garber St. The officer engaged the vehicle and attempted to stop it when the vehicle fled. A pursuit was initiated that ended on Franklin St. near Maple Street. Several subjects exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Several officers arrived to assist, when 4 out of the 5 subjects that fled the vehicle were quickly apprehended. One of the subjects is still at large. Deante Pharagood, Raheem Green, Sterling Tillman Jr., and Terrence Scott were the subject apprehended after the pursuit.

As the investigation unfolded, it was learned that a juvenile subject was struck by gunfire and treated at a local medical facility with moderate injuries. According to reports, the victim was in the area of Garber St. when the vehicle in question pulled into the area and opened fire.

Investigators with the Morgan City Police Department Detectives Division responded. Investigators were able to locate in total five firearms, two of which were found to be stolen. The investigation continued when evidence was uncovered linking Pharagood, Green, Tillman, and Scott to the crime.

Arrest warrants were prepared for everyone's arrest for Attempted First Degree Murder, Illegal Possession of Stolen Firearms, Firearm Free Zone, and Resisting an Officer. Tillman was found to be a convicted felon which prohibits him from possessing a firearm. Therefore, he was additionally charged.

The four subjects apprehended were booked and processed by the Morgan City Jail.

Chief Chad M. Adams and the Morgan City Police Department thanked the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office and the Berwick Police Department for their assistance in the investigation. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact the Morgan City Police Department Detectives Division 985-380-4605.
