According to Acadia Parish Sheriff Wayne Melancon, his office received a call from a resident that reported receiving several threatening telephone calls.
According to witnesses at the scene, two vehicles occupied by several male subjects arrived at the residence a short time later and gunshots were exchanged following a verbal disturbance.
Following an investigation into the incident investigators issued a warrant for the arrest of Brannon Deshotel of North Craig Street in Jennings. Deshotel was arrested without incident and transported to the Acadia Parish Jail where he remains with bond set at $1,000,000 by District Judge Kristian Earles.
Melancon stated that during the exchange of gunshot one a male subject was struck by a single shotgun blast and was treated for non-life threatening injuries at Jennings American Legion Hospital.
As the investigation continues additional arrests are expected.
