A second suspect in an Amelia shooting is behind bars on attempted armed robbery charges.
St. Mary Parish sheriff's deputies arrested 21-year-old Dwayne Anthony Skinner in connection with the June 14 incident. Investigators say Skinner was one of three men who tried to rob another man outside a bar on LA 182 near the Greenwood overpass. The victim was shot, but he has since been released from the hospital.
Paul Charles was arrested June 28 and charged with attempted first-degree murder in connection with the incident.
Deputies say they are still investigating the case and working to find the third suspect. If you have any information about this case, call the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office at 985-384-1622.
