The victim was identified as Ricky Lyons, 33, of 102 Elam Street, Ruston, according to Lincoln Parish Sheriff Wayne Houck.

Witnesses to the shooting told deputies that a man drove up in a car and confronted the victim.

Shortly after, witnesses said they heard gunshots and saw the shooter re-enter his car and flee the scene, Houck said.

“When the deputies got there they found this man lying just off the road,” Houck said.
