WHO IS TRAYFORD PELLERIN? 

CNN reported at the time that officers were called to the Louisiana convenience store shortly after 8 p.m. in August to respond to a “disturbance involving a person armed with a knife.” 

The police found Pellerin in the store’s parking lot with a knife, a Police statement said. When officers tried to apprehend him, Pellerin left and officers followed on foot.
