Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office officials have reported the arrest of Willie London, 41, of Roseland, on charges of attempted second-degree murder, illegal use of a firearm and dangerous instrumentalities, illegally carrying a firearm used in the commission of a violent crime, and obstruction of justice-evidence tampering.

Chief Jimmy Travis stated that the investigation began Thursday around 5:30 p.m., after the TPSO received information that a female sustaining a gunshot wound to the stomach area was relocated to a residence in Roseland. Shortly after arriving on scene, the female was transported to an area hospital via Acadian Ambulance Services where she remains in stable condition.

During the investigation, deputies reportedly located and collected multiple .223-caliber shell casings from the crime scene.

The suspect was identified as London, who was reportedly located in an area behind the crime scene and taken into custody without incident.
