PRAIRIEVILLE - A Thursday afternoon shooting in a Prairieville neighborhood off Bluff Road left one man injured and resulted in the arrest of the alleged gunman, according to the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office. 

The sheriff's office issued a statement regarding the incident on Friday, identifying the arrested individual as 28-year-old Ervin LaBostrie III of Prairieville and revealing that the man LaBostrie allegedly shot is currently hospitalized but expected to make a full recovery.
