BENTON, La. (AP) — A Louisiana woman was arrested and accused of shooting and wounding her father, who is a local sheriff’s deputy, authorities said.
Kalee L. Wich, 22, was charged Monday with attempted first degree murder in the shooting of 56-year-old Deputy Burt Wich of the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, according to a news release.
A sheriff’s office press release said investigators were called to Deputy Wich’s home around 5 p.m. Monday, where they found him suffering from multiple gunshots wounds.
Wich was airlifted to Ochsner LSU Health in Shreveport where he is in stable condition.
