Suspect in fatal Hahnville bar shooting arrested in Kenner

A 35-year-old Boutte man has been arrested in connection with a shooting that left one man dead and another person injured early Friday morning.

The shooting occurred at 12:30 a.m. at Butt Cuts Bar, located on Joe Louis Lane. When St. Charles Parish sheriff’s deputies arrived at the bar they found 23-year-old David Scott, of Houston, Texas, lying dead on the floor with multiple gunshot wounds.

Another victim was shot in the foot and was treated and released from St. Charles Parish Hospital.

Detectives quickly named Larry Thompson, of 168 Boutte Estates Drive in Boutte, a suspect because he had gotten into an argument with Scott over a female friend.

Thompson, who was hiding in a Kenner apartment complex, was arrested on Monday morning and is charged with second-degree murder and aggravated battery.

St. Charles Parish sheriff’s deputies tracked Thompson down with assistance from U.S. marshals.

Thompson’s bond was set at $500,000.
