Man found shot to death behind St. Rose church
At 9:15 p.m., St. Charles Parish deputies were dispatched to Third Street after receiving a call that someone was lying in the road. When they arrived, deputies found Ramal Ellis, of 243 Fourth St. in St. Rose, lying in the roadway behind the Fifth African Baptist Church.
Ellis had multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead on the scene.
This is the fifth murder in St. Charles Parish this year and second homicide this month. In early November, Stanley Robinson Sr. was shot and killed in his home. His son, Stanley Robinson Jr., has been arrested in connection with the death.
In June, Quinn Coleman was shot in the chest in Luling. Darryl Davis, 21, was arrested and charged with the murder. In March, Deaneal Rachal was found shot to death in St. Rose. Like Ellis, he was found lying on the street with gunshot wounds. No one has been arrested in connection with that murder.
The first murder this year occurred in January when Michael McCray was shot to death in St. Rose while sitting in his car. Four people were arrested and charged in connection with the homicide.
Anyone with information regarding the murder is asked to contact Det. Jeremy Pitchford at (985) 783-1135 or (985) 783-6807.
Those with information may also contact Crimestoppers at 1 (877) 903-STOP. You do not have to give your name or testify and could receive up to $2,500.
