The West Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested a Zachary man early Monday morning who is accused of shooting a woman Sunday evening in St. Francisville.
Lionel Haile, 22, shot at a group of people in Hardwood subdivision around 10:30 p.m., striking one woman in the leg, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Erin Foster said in a news release.
The Sheriff’s Office believes Haile and the group of people were having an argument earlier in the evening and that Haile later returned to the scene with a gun and fired shots at the others, Foster said.
The woman who was struck by a bullet was transported by Emergency Medical Services to a local hospital.
Haile, 18733 Samuels Road, was arrested at 2:15 a.m. Monday and booked into West Feliciana Parish Jail on four counts of attempted second-degree murder.
