39-year-old Mark Willams of Lafayette was arrested and booked into the Lafayette  Parish Correctional Center on a charge of  Attempted Second Degree Murder.

The St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to a call about a shooting in the 1000 block of Mouton Avenue around 8:30 Wednesday morning.

Deputies say a male victim sustained a gunshot wound following an altercation with Williams. He was transported to a local hospital and is currently in stable condition.

A warrant was obtained for Williams last night following an investigation into the incident. He was arrested by the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office at a residence on Hobson Street in Lafayette, according to deputies.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
