GONZALES — Agents with a state fugitive task force found a man in New Orleans who has been wanted over a shooting Sunday in Donaldsonville, Ascension sheriff's deputies said.

Michael Leblanc, 33, of Donaldsonville was found Thursday morning in New Orleans by the Louisiana State Police Fugitive Apprehension Task Force, deputies said in a statement.

Sheriff's deputies said Thursday that Leblanc shot at a homeowner Sunday while the person was at a home on Fifth Street in Donaldsonville. The homeowner wasn't injured but vehicles on the street were damaged from the gunfire, deputies said.
