Police make arrest in attempted murder case
BATON ROUGE - Police said the suspect in a shooting earlier this week surrendered Wednesday to detectives in Baton Rouge.
Cpl. Don Coppola Jr. said 27-year-old Travis Thomas surrendered to charges of second-degree attempted murder, illegal use of a weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Detectives said Thomas shot a 40-year-old man after the two had an argument Monday night around 8:50 p.m. on Jefferson Avenue. Police said the victim was still in critical condition at a local hospital.
Coppola said Thomas will be booked into the parish jail on the above charges later Wednesday.
