A local man has been arrested in a shooting that left a Mamou woman hospitalized earlier this week.

The incident happened on Tuesday at a home on Buzz Lane. A woman was airlifted to a Lafayette hospital, where she remains stable and doing well, an Evangeline Parish Sheriff's spokesman said today. 

The woman was injured with gunshot wounds to her right hand and left chest area. 

Floyd Porche Jr., 65, was booked with attempted second-degree murder in connection with the incident. 

Detectives learned that the shooting happened during a family fight. 

Porche's bond has been set at $250,000 by 13th Judicial Judge Chuck West.
