Man arrested for shooting
A 26-year-old Eunice man has been charged with a shooting that occurred in the Beulah Gardens area at about 10 p.m. Monday.
Eunice Police Chief Randy Fontenot identified the man as Desmond Amos Guillory, 26, 800 block of South Beulah.
Guillory is charged with aggravated second-degree battery in the shooting of James Garlow, 40, of Ville Platte, he said.
Garlow was shot by a .45-caliber pistol in the upper left leg and in the arm, he said. A slug was removed from the man’s abdomen after he was taken to Acadian Medical Center, he said.
Garlow remained hospitalized Wednesday morning, he said.
Fontenot said Garlow was attacking his daughter when Guillory intervened. A pistol dropped out of Garlow’s waist band and Guillory picked it up and shot Garlow with it, he said.
Alcohol was involved, he said.
Charges will likely be filed against Garlow, Fontenot said. Guillory was scheduled for a magistrate’s hearing Wednesday, he said.
