A Patterson woman has been arrested in connection with a shooting investigation on Tuesday, June 9, 2020.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office says they arrested 27-year-old Rosalyn Marie Collins of Patterson on charges of negligent injuring, illegal discharge of a firearm, and on a warrant for failure to appear on the charges of criminal damage to property and trespassing.

The arrest is in connection to a shooting investigation Tuesday. At around 3:46 pm the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a victim that was injured by a gunshot. Upon arrival, the deputies say they made contact with a victim who stated that a woman, later identified as Collins, came to her house saying she needed help and needed to get inside her home.

The homeowner allowed Collins to use a phone to call for help. While at the residence, deputies say a gun that Collins had in her possession discharged into the floor and injured three juveniles and the homeowner. They were treated for minor injuries. Collins was located today and arrested.
