Sheriff: Man arrested for shooting 8-year-old girl in drive-by linked to different shooting
SPRINGFIELD - A man in jail for allegedly shooting an eight-year-old girl in Livingston Parish earlier this year has been booked on additional charges Wednesday.
The Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office said Jaran Adams, 21, was identified as the suspect in a May 9 drive-by shooting on Pardue Road in Springfield and he was arrested Sept. 30.
On Oct. 26, Adams was linked to a shooting three days later in the same area and has been booked for assault by drive-by shooting, illegal use of weapons and three counts of attempted first-degree murder.
May 9, deputies initially reported the girl was sitting in a vehicle when shots were fired toward a home, striking her. The child was brought to a hospital and was reported to be in stable condition shortly after the shooting.
Adams was booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center on charges of aggravated criminal damage to property and illegal use of a weapon. He was then transferred to the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on unrelated charges, according to the sheriff's office.
