The incident happened at about 10 p.m. on March 10, police say. Officers were called to the 800 block of Standard Mill Road.

When they got there, they found a woman who told them that she and the man had argument, and then he got out of his vehicle and shot at her and her two-year-old. The man then drove away. There were other witnesses who told the same story, police say.

The second-degree charge relates to the woman, and the first-degree charge relates to the child - because under Louisiana law killing or attempting to kill someone younger than 12 years of age.
