A 20-year-old Thibodaux woman was arrested Tuesday in connection to a shooting at an apartment complex last month, authorities said.
Amber Anderson, of 211 Leighton Quarters Road, is charged with aggravated criminal damage to property, the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office said.
On May 13, deputies responded to an apartment complex on La. 1 near Labadieville to investigate reports of shots fired, authorities said. A suspect had fired multiple shots in the direction of the apartment complex, striking the building in several places.
The intended victim, a man who lived at the complex, had gotten into an argument with his girlfriend prior to the shooting, the Sheriff’s Office said. The girlfriend, identified as Anderson, told another individual about the argument and sent threatening text messages to the victim.
Detectives secured an arrest warrant for Anderson and took her into custody, authorities said. She was transported to the Assumption Parish jail and is awaiting a bond hearing. Additional arrests may be possible, the Sheriff’s Office said.
