2 arrested in shooting of pregnant Gonzales woman

On Monday, a woman who was accused of participating in the shooting of an eight-months-pregnant Gonzales woman surrendered to Ascension Parish sherriff's deputies.

The 27-year-old LaPlace woman is now charged with being an accessory after the fact to attempted second-degree murder and first-degree feticide. (Feticide is to the killing of an unborn child.)

Her boyfriend, a 27-year-old Hammond man, is accused of doing the shooting. He has been charged with attempted first-degree feticide, attempted second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon.

The 25-year-old woman who was shot was carrying the alleged shooter's child.Both she and the baby are reported to be in stable condition at an area hospital.

She was leaving her residence at 4:20 a.m. or so last Wednesday when a man in dark clothing approached her vehicle and shot at her. She was struck twice, once in the arm and once in the chest. The woman tried to flee her shooter but wrecked her vehicle in the process.

Authorities have not said how they think the 27-year-old woman was involved with the shooting. They also have not thoroughly explained why they believe the man wanted to kill the mother of his child.

The woman is being held in Assumption Parish Prison on $100,000 bond. Her boyfriend is also being held on bond, though his is $600,000.

Although the crimes alleged here are very dramatic, we think it is important to reserve judgment until a final verdict is rendered. Rushing to judge would certainly be premature and inappropriate.
