Two Ouachita Parish, LA, deputies were shot early Thursday morning while attempting to serve a felony warrant with U.S. Marshals.

Ouachita Parish Sheriff Jay Russell told the News Star the suspect, Rickie Lavelle Wade Jr., 26, of Monroe, was taken into custody at approximately 8:40 a.m., after leading law enforcement agencies on a manhunt in a southern Ouachita Parish neighborhood.

The two deputies were reportedly shot with a .45 caliber handgun, one in the leg and the other in the jaw. They were taken to area hospitals for treatment of their injuries.  Russell said one deputy was transported to LSU-Shreveport for further examination. Both were listed in stable condition.

My prayers are with the two officers who were shot and their families. I pray they heal fast and fully. The Lord be with them.
