A 25-year-old man shot his girlfriend in the abdomen in Marrero over the weekend, and deputies jailed him on a count of attempted murder, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office said Monday.

Investigators learned of the attack in the 2700 block of Colony Court when the 33-year-old victim took a private ride to a local emergency room for treatment about 6:15 p.m. Saturday, Sheriff's Lt. Jason Rivarde said.

Deputies ended up booking the woman's boyfriend, Trey Von "Scooby" Stafford, on a count of attempted second-degree murder. He remained behind bars Monday and was due to appear at a bail hearing on Wednesday.

In other matters handled by local law enforcement authorities:
