Madison said Humphrey was reportedly the look-out for the other person.

The firearm has not been recovered, Madison said.

Madison said Ferriday Police still seek the other person involved.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call FPD at 318-757-3606.

On Sept. 6, Humphrey was charged with aggravated burglary, convicted felon in possession of a firearm and cruelty to a juvenile.

Madison said that incident was connected to a Sept. 5 burglary, also on Virginia Avenue, in which he allegedly pushed a child in commission of the crime. Madison said the burglary was considered as an aggravated burglary because Humphrey reportedly had a firearm in his possession.

Humphrey was in jail Wednesday afternoon on a $122,500 bond.
