According to officials, many bullets were fired from two automobiles involved in the first incident, which occurred near the intersection of Buford Street and St. Louis Street shortly after 11 a.m. on November 22, 2022.

Thomas was identified as the driver of one vehicle, in which Cleveland was a passenger and Lyons as the driver of the other.

All three were booked into the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex in Thibodaux. They were charged with one count each of attempted second-degree murder, illegal use of weapons, and three counts each of aggravated criminal damage to property.

Thomas was also charged with marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia possession. His bail has been set at $1 million. Cleveland and Lyons’ bail is set at $1.1 million apiece.
