Original Story

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Kenneth Doby is hospitalized after being shot while patrolling in the Waldheim area early Wednesday (May 25, 2022) morning. 

Deputy Doby was patrolling the area of Highway 21 and Highway 1083 in Waldheim after a suspected business burglary had been reported. At approximately 3 a.m., Deputy Doby approached an individual who he observed walking in the area, and when he got out of his unit the individual fired a weapon, striking the deputy.

Unverified reports identify the shooter as a 13 year-old.

After being shot, the deputy was still able to assist in taking the subject into custody before the arrival of emergency medical personnel. Deputy Doby was transported to a local hospital, where he is alert and being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The subject is currently being interviewed by detectives, and charges in connection with the business burglary and the shooting are pending.
