A St. Martinville teenager arrested Monday is accused of shooting his father in the leg during an argument, the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office said.

Kenneth Broussard Jr., 18, was booked into Iberia Parish jail on one count each of attempted second-degree murder and illegal possession of stolen firearms, said Maj. Ryan Turner, Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

Deputies began investigating the shooting after Broussard’s father went to a hospital to treat the bullet wound, Turner said.

Broussard remained in jail Tuesday afternoon without bond, according to booking records.
