Shortly after 2 am this morning, a representative from at a local-area hospital contacted the STPSO in reference to 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 went to the victim’s Queens Drive residence and located his boyfriend, Aaron Williams. Williams reportedly told detectives he and the victim had been involved in a verbal argument, and during that argument he had produced a handgun and 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 the charges of Attempted Second-degree Murder and Obstruction of Justice
The victim has been transported to a South-shore hospital, where he is being treated and is in stable condition at this time.
