Two minutes later, the department received a second call from the same area about shots being fired. One minute later, a call from the Winn Parish Medical Center notified police that a shooting victim was in the emergency room, where he was later pronounced dead. The dead man that day was Fernando “Freddie” Jewitt. And, his family and friends are still looking for answers.
