Officers made three arrests in connection to the shooting death of a man found slumped over in his car in Gibson.

He was treated for a dog bite and taken to a local hospital.

The driver of the Mustang and Cedotal's girlfriend, who was in the back seat, were taken into custody.

Dardar was arrested for accessory after the fact to second-degree murder and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Her bond was set at $500,000.

Cedatol was later arrested for one count of second-degree murder, possession of a firearm in the presence of a CDS, three counts of possession with intent to distribute CDS 2 and one count of possession with intent to distribute CDS 1, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. His bond has been set at $1,000,000.

One of Cedatol's friends was also arrested. Joshua Babin, 21, was charged with one count of accessory after the fact to second-degree murder. His bond was seat at $100,000.

All three suspects remain in the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex.
