A 26-year-old Houma man was arrested Tuesday after trying to rob another man at gunpoint over the weekend, police said. 

Henry Allridge is charged with attempted second-degree murder, attempted armed robbery, possession of a firearm by a person convicted of domestic abuse battery, possession of heroin and carrying a gun in the presence of drugs, Houma Police said. 

Police were called about 3:30 a.m. Sunday to the 100 block of Samuel Street to investigate shots fired, authorities said. They found the suspect suffering from a gunshot wound to his leg. 

Investigators learned Allridge went to his ex-girlfriend’s house armed with a semiautomatic handgun. The victims, a 22-year-old woman and a 41-year-old male, were entering the home when Allridge approached them, police said.

As the suspect approached the male victim he tried to rob him, police said. Allridge then struck the victim with the gun, prompting a fight over the weapon, police said. During the struggle, at least two shots were fired, one of which struck the suspect in his lower leg.

The victims disarmed the suspect and “secured him” until authorities arrived on the scene, police said.

After Allridge was discharged from the hospital, he was arrested and booked into the Terrebonne Parish jail, where he is being held without bond due to a probation violation.
