The Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating a second homicide that occurred in less than two weeks.

On Friday, deputies responded to the area of 4th and Hickory streets in reference to a body found there. They located a deceased male, later identified as Jalen O’Keith Holland, 23.

Detectives immediately began processing the scene for potential evidence, LPSO spokesman Deputy Matt Henderson said.

On the night of March 16, patrol deputies were dispatched to a residence on Water Tank Road in reference to shots being fired.  Upon arrival, they found an unresponsive male subject suffering from a gunshot wound and sitting in a vehicle. The victim, later identified as Terrell Scott, 24, of Ruston, was pronounced deceased at the scene. 

No information was available as to whether investigators think there’s a connection between the two homicides.
