Pappillion was arrested Tuesday morning and appeared in probable cause court overnight. There, we learned that a witness told authorities that Pappillion and the victim left a house party where they were all together to commit a robbery.
The witness told authorities after they left the party, Pappillion and the victim showed up at his house.
“That witness stated that at 1:40 a.m. the defendant and the complainant arrived at his residence. That witness stated that the defendant was irritated at the complainant for not committing the robbery because the target was an elderly woman,” a court representative said.
The probable cause statement also said there was surveillance of the teens at that witnesses’ house. It was just a short time later that police were called to Treeline Drive after residents heard shots fired in the area.
Pappillion’s bond is set at $75,000 dollars. He is set to appear in court on Thursday.
