A Memorial Hospital spokesman said the victim was transferred to the LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport.
The police responded to a call at about 11:20 p.m. regarding the shooting in the suspect’s home in the 1600 block of 14th Street, Kraus said.
Kraus did not comment on the circumstances of the shooting. The suspect is being charged with aggravated battery and illegal use of dangerous instrumentation.
