An 18-year-old Bogalusa man was arrested this week after reportedly shooting at his ex-girlfriend’s vehicle, according to Maj. Percy Knight of the Bogalusa Police Department.

Knight, the public information officer for the BPD, said that on Monday, April 2, the BPD received a call in reference to several gunshots being fired in the 700 block of Huron Avenue.

“BPD officers arrived in the area, but failed to locate anyone shooting a gun,” Knight said. “A short time later, two victims arrived at the Bogalusa Police Department to file a complaint.  One of the victims stated that she had been talking to her ex-boyfriend, Kermon Warren, on the phone and they began to argue.

“The victim stated that she and her passenger drove to the 700 block of Huron Avenue to confront Warren. The victim stated that she drove up to the residence while staying inside her vehicle, when Warren walked outside to the vehicle and they continued to argue.”

Knight said that Warren went back inside the residence and the victim backed out of the driveway to leave. As the victim was leaving, Warren came outside of the residence with a handgun and shot at the vehicle four or five times, striking the vehicle one time on the passenger side, Knight said.

Warren, 18, of Bogalusa was located at his residence and placed under arrest. The weapon involved, a .45 caliber handgun, was recovered from inside the residence.

Warren was booked and charged with illegal use of weapons or a dangerous instrumentality, and two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.
