Police: Boutte man fires shots at co-worker
2 had gotten into argument over money
Jarrod G. Washington, 21, of 353 Sharon Ave. in Boutte, had reportedly borrowed money from the victim and was asked to pay the money back, according to Sgt. Dwayne LaGrange, Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
"When the victim confronted Washington about the money a verbal confrontation ensued and the victim left and went inside his house," LaGrange said. "While he was inside, a friend knocked on his door and told him that someone had busted out the window to his vehicle."
After hearing that the person who broke his window resembled Washington, the victim and his friend drove to Washington’s house to confront him. Washington wasn’t home, but the two spoke to one of Washington’s parents about the incident, LaGrange said.
"Upon leaving the area, they stopped at the intersection of Maple and Acorn streets and the victim said he heard five or six gunshots," LaGrange said. "He saw Washington facing his vehicle and he sped up to avoid from being injured."
When the victim got home, he checked his vehicle and noticed a bullet hole and called the Sheriff’s Office. LaGrange said deputies immediately began a search for Washington and at one point located him, but he fled.
They were eventually able to arrest him a short time later.
Washington was charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder. His bond was set at $50,000 and was released from jail after posting $5,000.
