A 17-year-old Jennings man has been charged with four counts of attempted second-degree murder in Acadia Parish, authorities said.
Brannon Deshotel, of North Craig Street, was arrested Thursday in connection with a shooting that occurred late Wednesday at a home in the 1000 block of Old Evangeline Highway, Acadia Parish Sheriff Wayne Melancon said Friday.
“Our office received a call from a resident that reported receiving several threatening telephone calls,” Melancon said in a news release. “According to witnesses, two vehicles occupied by several male subjects arrived at the residence a short time later and gunshots were exchanged following a verbal disturbance.”
Deshotel is being held in the Acadia Parish Jail on a $1 million bond set by Judge Kristian Earles.
One man was hit by a single shotgun blast during the incident, Melancon said. The man, who has not been identified, was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Additional arrests were expected, Melancon said.
The Jennings Police Department and Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office assisted in the investigation.
