A Morgan City man is behind bars on attempted first-degree murder charges in connection with a bar shooting two weeks ago.
Twenty-two-year old Paul "Diddy" Charles is also charged with attempted robbery with a firearm.
The incident occurred on June 14 at a lounge on LA 182 near the Greenwood overpass. St. Mary Parish sheriff's deputies say Charles was one of three men who tried to rob the victim outside of the lounge. During the incident, the victim was shot.
The victim was hospitalized but has since been released.
The sheriff's office would not specify if Charles was the person who fired the shot. A spokesperson for the sheriff's office says the case is "still very much under investigation."
