Arrest of Damon Boullt

Monday, May 12, 2014 10:59 AM


Sheriff Newell Normand announces the arrest of Damon Boullt, B/M, 44, of 2700 Whitney Avenue, Apartment 334 in Harvey.

On Sunday, May 11, 2014, our officers responded to reports of a disturbance and shots fired at 2700 Whitney Avenue in Harvey. Second District Patrol Officer Judd Harris arrived on the scene an discovered an individual identified as Damon Boullt in possession of the handgun. Harris ordered Boullt to drop the weapon, which he complied. Boullt told Harris he shot the victim after he kicked open the door of his apartment.

Investigators determined there was an ongoing feud between several residents of the Whitney apartment complex over the improper disposing of cigarette butts. Reports indicated the cigarette butts were being dropped from the upstairs apartment, which is #336 down below to area in front of #334. As a result, the resident/family members of apartment 336 (Hunter) have continuously argued over this same issue with the resident/family members of apartment 334 (Boullt). The incident escalated on Sunday from a verbal altercation into a physical one, thus, resulting in Paul Hunter’s mother being struck with a metal pole. She was not seriously injured. When the fight ended, family members contacted the victim, Paul Hunter, B/M, 45, of 1200 Brown Avenue in Harvey and advised him of the fight. At that time, Hunter travelled to 2700 Whitney and met with his family members. Once at the apartment complex, Hunter became angry and proceeded to Apartment 334.

Family members of Damon Boullt made him aware of additional family members from the Hunter family were arriving at the complex. Being fearful of retaliation, Boullt told investigators he retreated to his apartment, once inside, locked the door and armed himself with a .45 caliber handgun. Boullt reported that while inside of his apartment, his front door was forced open at which time he observed Paul Hunter entering the apartment. Boullt removed the .45 caliber handgun from his pocket. Once Hunter observed the handgun he fled from the apartment. Boullt pursued Hunter out of his apartment and into the parking area. As Hunter slipped and fell to the ground, Boullt repeatedly fired his .45 caliber handgun striking Hunter numerous times. Family members of Hunter transported him to Meadow Crest Hospital, where he was later transferred to University Hospital for treatment. Hunter remains in critical condition.

Damon Boullt was transported to the JPCC where he was booked with one count of Attempted Second Degree Murder.
