METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Authorities in Louisiana have identified a sheriff's deputy who was shot and wounded outside of New Orleans.
 
In a press release, Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joseph Lopinto Monday identified the wounded deputy as Christopher "Charlie" Haislup.
 
The 34-year-old officer has been with the sheriff's office for 11 years. He's married and has two children.
 
He is currently in stable condition at University Medical Center and is expected to undergo surgery in the coming days to correct damage to his leg caused by the shooting.
 
Haislup was responding to a disturbance at a Metairie hotel Sunday night when he was shot and wounded in the elbow and leg.
 
Authorities have identified the man who allegedly shot Haislup as 38-year-old Tyronne Louis.
 
They're still searching for him.
