One person has been arrested in connection with a Monday afternoon shooting that injured two.

Opelousas Police say 20-year-old Henry Bradley of Opelousas has been arrested in connection with the March 21 shooting incident on Plaisance and W Coleman Street.

Two people were injured and one person was transported to a local hospital following the shooting.

Police Chief Martin McLendon said that the incident is believed to have stemmed from an ongoing feud between those involved.

Bradley was booked on two counts of attempted second degree murder and illegal carrying of a weapon.

Police say several weapons were recovered during a traffic stop when Bradley was taken into custody.

OPD says that other arrests not directly related to the shooting are forthcoming.
