JONESVILLE, La. — 40-year-old Charles Bradley Dosher was charged Sunday with the murder of his father.

He is the son of Charles Dosher, the victim.

Bond for Brad Dosher was set at $1,125,000.

Charles Dosher was shot to death at approximately 5:15 p.m. Sunday. Shortly afterward, CPSO received a call reporting the shooting and soon began the pursuit of Brad Dosher, who attempted to elude deputies on a chase through the hills of Manifest and Harrisonburg areas.

Brad Dosher has been charged with 2nd degree murder, convicted felon in possession of a firearm and aggravated flight from officers.

In a statement, CPSO Chief Detective Bubba Roy said that during the investigation the sheriff’s office learned that Bradley Dosher was possibly in the Manifest area near Heard’s Cemetery. 

“Once back on Hwy 8 enroute back to Harrisonburg,” Roy said, “we encountered Dosher pulling off Wright Road onto Hwy 8, turning towards Manifest. At that time, the pursuit began. He made a U-turn around, and fled back into the hills. I called other units to assist in the pursuit, which took a lengthy route into the hills, and coming out on Rex Poole Road, where deputies encountered Dosher.

Roy said Dosher continued to evade them and pulled onto Owens Road.

“During the chase, Dosher turned off of the main road and got his vehicle stuck,” he said. “The suspect then fled on foot.”

Roy said agents from CPSO, LaSalle Parish Sheriff’s Office, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Louisiana Sate Police Harrisonburg Police Department, Sicily Island Police Department and Jonesville Police Department arrived on the scene where Dosher eventually came out to a residence and was taken into custody.
