On October 1, 2022, at approximately 2304 hours, the Avoyelles 911 Communication Center received a 911 call reporting a shooting incident on Moses Lane, Marksville, LA in the Fifth Ward Community.  Avoyelles Parish Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to the scene.  Initially, 50-year-old Jimmy Tyler lied to his family and Deputies about how the incident happened by alleging there was an attacker.  Further investigation by APSO Detectives revealed that Tyler admitted to receiving his minor injuries from an accidental self-inflicted gunshot, and no altercation occurred.  No other individuals were involved in this incident.

On October 3, 2022, Tyler was arrested and booked into the Avoyelles Parish Jail for Illegal Carrying and Discharge of Weapons (Misdemeanor), Obstruction of Justice (Misdemeanor), and Criminal Mischief (Misdemeanor).  The bond was set at $10,000.00.  On October 5, 2022, Tyler was released on bond.
