JEFFERSON PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

Deputies patrolling a Marrero neighborhood were met with gunfire, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office. Two men have now been arrested.

Terrance Carter, 20, and Malcolm Hall, 21, were both arrested following an extensive investigation.

The incident happened on Sept. 2 near the intersection of James and Jordan drives in Marrero. Deputies say that the windshield on the unmarked Jefferson Parish police unit was riddled with bullet holes after someone opened fire on three officers inside. Deputies say that the gun used had a laser sight.

The neighborhood was known for drug activity, Col. John Fortunato said, and the members of the Street Crimes unit were on a proactive patrol. None of the three deputies was injured in the shooting. They were in street clothes but clearly marked wearing vests that said "Sheriff's Office" across them.

During the course of their investigation, Jefferson Parish deputies were notified that 20-year-old Terrance Carter, who was wanted by probation and parole, may have been involved in the shooting.

On Sept. 4, Carter was located at his residence and placed under arrest without incident. Officers say marijuana was found in the home. Deputies say that 21-year-old Malcolm Hall was also found inside of Carter’s home. He was wanted on two attachments from Second Parish Court and two from Westwego Court, according to investigators.

Both were transported to the Investigations Bureau for further questioning.

Carter told deputies that he, Hall and a third juvenile were standing in a lot when they saw officers pass by. Investigators say that Carter told Hall that the individuals in the unmarked car were officers. He claims that he and the juvenile left the area, knowing Hall was in possession of a gun. After walking away, Carter told deputies that he heard gunshots.

A search of Carter’s home revealed four firearms. Jefferson Parish deputies say one of the weapons seized was stolen from a New Orleans police officer. Another weapon was a Glock 9mm semi-automatic pistol with a red laser sight.

After forensic testing, deputies say they determined that the Glock handgun was a ballistics match with the spent shell casings recovered the night of the shooting incident.

Hall faces three counts of attempted first degree murder and four counts of being in possession of a firearm while in possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Investigators say Hall has an extensive criminal history with arrests for simple burglary, simple battery, possession of marijuana, possession of stolen things, battery on a police officer, resisting arrest and aggravated obstruction.

Carter faces four counts of possession of a firearm while in possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Hall has an extensive criminal history as well, with prior arrests for possession of stolen things, interfering with police, battery on a police officer, resisting arrest, probation violation and obstruction of justice.

The juvenile mentioned was questioned and released.
