Suspect allegedly said he had a concealed gun and acted aggressively when deputies responded to domestic disturbance at his home
A St. Tammany Parish sheriff's deputy shot and wounded an unarmed Lacombe man who allegedly said he had a concealed gun and acted aggressively when deputies responded to a domestic disturbance at his home.
The sheriff's office says 28-year-old Daniel J. Orgeron didn't sustain a life-threatening wound when a deputy shot him in the abdomen with a single shotgun blast late Monday.
Authorities said Tuesday that Orgeron will be booked on second-degree battery, aggravated assault and other charges following his release from a local hospital.
Orgeron allegedly told a 911 dispatcher that he intended to kill any deputies who responded to a report of an altercation with his girlfriend.
His girlfriend was treated for a broken hand and swollen eye.
