Bossier Sheriffs deputies are seeking a suspect wanted in connection with a shooting that killed a Plain Dealing man.

Just after 8 p.m. on Monday night, Bossier Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 200 block of Ford Road in Plain Dealing and found Kenneth Oliver, 33, of Plain Dealing, with two gunshot wounds.

Donavon Terrell Oliver is wanted in conjunction with a fatal shooting in Plain Dealing.
