Justin Malbrough, who had previously been convicted of offenses including possessing a firearm as a convicted felon and burglary, was released at 6:54 a.m. on Tuesday. At approximately 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Lake Charles police responded to a shooting incident at an apartment complex.

According to law enforcement officials, 20-year-old Jayden Shelby was discovered with multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.
