This year the 4th of July started off with a fatal bang, several of them. He was driving a red 2000, 4-door Buick Regal when someone or persons unknown shot him several times over.

Twenty-one year old Dorian Colston was able to drive for a short distance westbound, perhaps trying to get help when he left the roadway and crashed into a tree.

When CPSO arrived passersby were attempting to render aid and that's when CPSO detectives determined he was shot to death which ultimately caused the crash.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriffs Office Detective Travis Lavergne is leading the investigation into this homicide and is asking for public assistance. If you know anything or saw anything please call CPSO at 337-491-3605.

You are reminded that withholding information you may have regarding this shooting could lead to charges being made against you.
