RESERVE — St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded at 8:17 p.m. June 7 to the area of Chad B. Baker Street in Reserve for the report of gunshots in the area.

A witness in the 200 block of East 27th Street told a deputy gunshots were fired from a black Hummer traveling toward Louisiana 44.

Authorities said no one was injured and no damage was reported to surrounding property.

The original complainant on Chad B. Baker told deputies the occupants of a black Hummer got out the vehicle and started fighting with two boys. When the complainant yelled for them to stop, the passenger in the vehicle took out a gun. The occupants of the vehicle fled in the Hummer.

Deputies located the vehicle near Our Lady of Grace School and saw the passenger, Jervis Cosey, 19, getting out the vehicle.

In a statement, Cosey confessed to detectives he shot the gun. During the search of the vehicle, investigators found a handgun in the glove compartment.

Detectives arrested and booked Cosey with illegal use of a weapon.

He bonded out of jail on a $12,500 bond.
