A man was in critical condition after a Saturday night shooting on the streets of Center. Clifford De Earl Evans, 23,  is being treated at LSU Hospital in Shreveport for a gunshot wound to the head. Overnight his condition improved to fair.   Manuel Zane Johnson, 39,  is charged with the shooting. He's also facing charges for having cocaine, PCP, and a firearm. A 38 revolver was recovered at the scene.  

Also in the Shelby County jail is a Waco man who refused to obey officers and get out of a car on Sunday night. Kevin Lynn Parker, 39,  had Center police in a stand off for about an hour. He had been involved in a small accident. When people came to his aid he said he had a gun. Eventually police talked him into giving himself up. Turns out the car was stolen out of Milam County. And he did not have a gun.
