A 22-year-old man was arrested Monday and charged with attempted second-degree murder after opening fire upon a man answering the door at a St. Rose home occupied by the victim.  

Troy Evans Jr., 22 and of St. Rose, was arrested and accused of being responsible for the March 28 incident, which occurred in the 500 block of Turtle Creek Lane.
