District Attorney Warren Montgomery reports that Cory C. McDonald (41) of Mandeville pleaded
The crime dates back to January 19, 2018, when McDonald attacked a woman and held her inside a Mandeville home until she was able to escape and call police. St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s deputies responded and found McDonald, armed with a shotgun and barricaded inside a small shed in the back yard of the property. While officers tried to negotiate a peaceful surrender, McDonald fired twice at them and narrowly missed striking one of the deputies in the head. After more than two hours, the department’s S.W.A.T. was able to enter the home and subdue McDonald, as he fought them.
