Suspect jumps in lake after firing off two shots at Civic Center

A Lake Charles man was arrested after firing a gun outside the Lake Charles Civic Center. Two Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's deputies were driving near the Civic Center around 11 o'clock Saturday night when they heard gun shots.

According to deputies there was a disturbance in the parking lot, which led 23-year-old Joshua Wright to fire two shots into the air.

Commander James McGee said Wright threw the handgun in the lake and jumped in the water. McGee said Wright returned a short time later and was arrested.

No one was injured in the incident.

Wright has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault, obstruction of justice and resisting an officer.

Lake Charles Police also assisted in the call.
