NEW ORLEANS - The FBI says the sheriff's deputy who was severely wounded during a drug raid was the first through the door.

In a criminal complaint filed Wednesday, the FBI says that 35-year-old Stephen Arnold led the raid into the house.

Arnold was shot five times during the raid, which was part of a sweeping set of drug raids Tuesday.

The FBI charged Jarvis Hardy on Wednesday with attempted murder.

The agency said that after his arrest, Hardy told authorities that he shot because he thought his home was being robbed.

The FBI also said Hardy's mother was home during the raid and told investigators that she knew her son was a drug dealer.
