A St. Martinville man is behind bars on attempted second-degree murder charges following a shooting at an apartment complex. The incident took place Monday morning at South Meadows Apartments on South Martin Luther King Drive. Police say 37-year-old Kevin Joseph forced his way into an apartment while armed with a shotgun. Detectives say shots were fired in the home, but no one was hit. A woman inside the apartment was hospitalized with minor injuries and later released.
In addition to the attempted murder charge, Joseph faces several other charges, including four counts of child endangerment, illegal use of a weapon, and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
