Suspect arrested in Paincourtville shooting that left one man injured
PAINCOURTVILLE - Deputies have arrested a man in connection with a late night shooting that left one person injured Wednesday.
Assumption Parish deputies said 36-year-old Chad Simoneaux was charged with one count of attempted second degree murder.
Deputies said they arrived at the scene of a reported shooting and learned one man had suffered a gunshot wound to the head. The victim was transported to a Baton Rouge hospital for treatment.
Following a series of interviews with witnesses, deputies said they determined Simoneaux and the victim had been arguing throughout the day, and Simoneaux later drove up in a pick-up truck and shot the victim.
Deputies arrested Simoneaux Thursday. He was booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center pending a bond hearing.
