Man arrested for firing a weapon at Bayou Blue residence
LAFOURCHE- Deputies from the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office arrested a man they say fired multiple rounds at a Bayou Blue residence Tuesday.
The suspect was identified as 24-year-old Jeremy Robinson.
Authorities said at around 3:35 a.m on Nov. 28, deputies responded to a report of multiple gunshots in Meadowland Subdivision in Bayou Blue. At the scene, deputies found several rounds had been fired at a woman's residential trailer. One round struck the trailer and two others struck a camper parked on the property. No one was injured in the shooting, authorities said.
Through their investigation, detectives learned that Robinson was in the trailer with a firearm moments prior to the shooting. Robinson was searching for a man that frequents the residence with which he has an ongoing dispute, reports say. The shooting occurred moments after Robinson left the residence.
Robinson met with detectives on Tuesday and gave a statement regarding the incident. He admitted to firing rounds toward the trailer, but he claimed he was shooting back after being fired upon. Investigators found no evidence to support Robinson's account of a shooter firing at him.
Authorities booked Robinson with aggravated criminal damage to property and illegal use of weapons. He bond is set at $50,000.
Detectives say the investigation into the incident is continuing, and additional charged are possible.
