A Luling man will spend 12 years in jail in connection with the death of his sister’s boyfriend.

Darryl Davis, 22, was arrested last June after police discovered 23-year-old Quinn Coleman bleeding from a gunshot wound in his chest in a small Luling neighborhood located off River Road near Barton Avenue. Davis told authorities that the incident began when he went to his grandmother’s home to make his sister and Coleman, her boyfriend, leave because they were causing problems.

Davis said that Coleman grabbed a bag filled with his clothes while he was leaving and pulled out a gun that was inside. Davis told police he grabbed the gun and Coleman began to run away. He says he fired one shot at Coleman and he saw him fall.

However, Davis’ sister told a different story. She said that Davis already had a gun when he came into her grandmother’s home. He pointed it at Coleman and told him to leave. When Coleman got outside the home, the sister said that he also pulled a gun and pointed it at Davis.

That’s when she said Coleman ran away and Davis fired at him. Coleman jumped a ditch and fell on the ground, but Davis ran over to him and shot him in the chest, according to the sister.

Coleman was rushed to St. Charles Parish Hospital but died before he arrived. Davis was arrested a short time later at Monsanto Park.

Though Davis was originally charged with second-degree murder, he pled guilty to convicted felon possessing a firearm or carrying a concealed weapon.

The murder charge was dismissed.
