St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office issues arrest warrants for four suspects in two unrelated shootings in Violet

The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office has issued arrest warrants for four individuals in two unrelated shooting incidents which both occurred on the afternoon of Friday, May 22 in Violet, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

In the first incident, which occurred on Daniel Drive in Violet, arrest warrants have been issued for the following suspects: Dwayne Ratcliff, 19, of the 2500 block of Caluda Lane in Violet; Tyron Enclarde, 21, of the 2500 block of Caluda Lane in Violet; and Terrell Dobard, 22, of the 2100 block of Mumphrey Road in Chalmette.

Shortly after 1 p.m. on Friday, Sheriff Pohlmann said, deputies responded to a call about a shooting in the 2900 block of Daniel Drive. When deputies arrived on the scene, they found a 14-year-old male suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg.

During the course of the investigation, detectives with the Criminal Investigations Bureau determined Ratcliff and Enclarde were involved in an altercation with Dobard. Ratcliff, Enclarde and Dobard all brandished weapons and fired shots at each other during the incident.

Sheriff Pohlmann said the male juvenile, not involved in the altercation, was struck by a stray bullet during the incident. He was transported to University Medical Center in New Orleans to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Ratcliff, Enclarde and Dobard fled the scene before deputies arrived, but detectives were able to identify all three through video surveillance.

In the second incident, an arrest warrant for illegal discharge of a firearm has been issued for Tyreese Riley, 18, of Contemporary Court in Violet.

On Friday around 3:40 p.m., Sheriff Pohlmann said, deputies responded to a call about shots fired in the 2800 block of Guerra Drive in Violet.

When deputies arrived on the scene, Riley had fled the scene, but deputies with the Field Operations Bureau were able to identify him through video surveillance and eyewitness accounts.

Sheriff Pohlmann said no one was injured in this incident.

Anyone knowing the whereabouts of Ratcliff, Enclarde, Dobard or Riley, or anyone with additional information regarding either of these incidents is asked to call the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Bureau TIPS hotline at (504) 271-TIPS or 8477, or Crimestoppers GNO at (504) 822-1111.
