The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting which occurred at a Slidell-area apartment complex early Monday (October 18) morning. 

At approximately 1 a.m. Monday, STPSO deputies were dispatched to the Lakeshore Apartments after a resident there reported an unknown armed man entered his apartment and began shooting, striking him once in the shoulder area. 

The victim told deputies he armed himself with a gun, at which time the suspect fled.

Emergency medical personnel transported the victim to a local area hospital, where he was treated for his non-life-threatening wound and released. 

This is an ongoing investigation, and anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Sgt. Rudolph at (985) 726-7849.
