Father and Son

NPSO- A week-long investigation by Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies led to the arrests of a father and son in connection with a shooting incident near Natchitoches earlier this month.

NPSO Patrol Division deputies responded to a reported shooting in the 100 block of Evangeline Drive near Natchitoches on Feb. 11 at 2:55 am. The complainant informed them that three rounds were fired into the residence while one adult male, one adult female and children occupied the home. No one was injured.

Deputies learned that Owen “O.C.” C. Scallion, 17 of Goldonna, went to the complainant’s residence to retrieve personal items. The complainant allegedly asked Scallion to leave. Scallion loosened the light bulb under the carport, firing three rounds through the door into the residence. The bullets lodged in the wall.

Scallion’s father Jamie Desadier, 44 of Natchitoches, and the complainant were involved in a prior relationship. Scallion fled the scene in a silver 2000 Nissan Xterra, also allegedly occupied by his father.

NPSO 911 Dispatch Center issued a BOLO for the suspects and the vehicle.

NPSO Criminal Investigations Division detectives gathered evidence at the crime scene. Shortly thereafter, deputies stopped the Nissan on Lakeshore Drive. The driver was identified as Scallion. A passenger was identified as Desadier.

While talking to Scallion he returned to the vehicle, entered and fled the scene leading deputies on a brief pursuit on Lakeshore Drive, then to Bonnette Street, North 5th Street and onto Robbins Drive where he stopped and jumped out the vehicle, dropping a handgun on the ground.

Scallion then picked up the handgun, and fled into nearby woods. Deputies took Desadier into the custody without incident.

Desadier was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center and charged with Accessory after the Fact to Attempted Second Degree Murder and Probation Violation. Bond was at $15,000 with a probation hold.

Deputies searched the area for Scallion and found footprints leading to a residence in the Washington Street area. The Natchitoches SWAT Unit responded. The Washington Street residence was searched, however, Scallion wasn’t found.

Deputies and SWAT members responded to a residence in the 200 block of Albert Conley Road in Goldonna on Feb. 13 at 8 am after a tip that Scallion was there.

When they arrived Scallion fled out the back door into some woods. Winn Parish Sheriff’s Office bloodhounds were put on stand-by to assist. Scallion surrendered 30 minutes later without incident.

Scallion was booked into the DC and charged with 4-counts of Attempted 2nd Degree Murder, 1-count of Resisting an Officer, and 1-count of Aggravated Assault. Bond was set at $80,500.
