The St. Tammany Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Slidell-area man following a shooting that occurred early Thursday morning at a residence in the 200 block of East Queens Drive near Slidell.
Shortly after 2 a.m. a local-area hospital contacted authorities about a man who was dropped off at the hospital’s emergency room with a gunshot wound to his chest. After responding to the hospital, detectives located the victim’s boyfriend, Aaron Williams. Williams told detectives he and the victim had been involved in a verbal argument, and during that argument he shot the victim once in the chest. He then dropped the victim off at the local emergency room before returning the residence and cleaning up the scene.
Williams was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on Attempted Second-degree Murder and Obstruction of Justice.
