INDEPENDENCE, LA (WAFB) -

According to the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office, a drive-by shooting that started with an argument over rap music lyrics left one woman dead; and she was not the intended target of the shooting.

Sheriff Daniel Edwards reports that 19-year-old Davontaye Jackson was arrested Monday evening and charged with first degree murder for the shooting death of 37-year-old Sandra Butler of Independence, LA.

Then Tuesday, 24-year-old Verdale Anthony Moore of Hammond, LA was also arrested in connection to the deadly shooting.

The shooting happened Sunday and deputies say it was because of a "feud over lyrics from rap music" that had "meaning between a specific group of individuals."

A third suspect, 17-year-old Kenneth Johnson of Hammond, LA is still at large. He is believed to be in the New Orleans area.

If you know where Johnson is, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-554-5245.
