PORT ALLEN — A woman was shot and wounded at a casino in Port Allen Saturday night, a West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s detective said.
A man walked into Cajun Circus Casino on La. 190 around 8 p.m. and became angry after he was told to leave, Detective Tommy Schiro said.
The man previously had been barred from the casino, Schiro said.
The man then pulled a gun out and shot the woman, a clerk at the casino, in the head, Schiro said.
The man then fled the scene, Schiro said.
The woman, whose name was not released, is expected to live, Schiro said.
The woman received a grazing wound to her head from the projectile, Schiro said.
Detectives do have a suspect and were trying to verify his name, Schiro said.
