GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -The second person suspected of being involved in the shooting of a pregnant woman is behind bars after turning herself in to authorities Monday morning.

The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office reported Tiffany Victor, 27, of LaPlace, was booked on charges of accessory after the fact of attempted first-degree feticide and accessory after the fact of attempted second-degree murder in the shooting of Kenyia Houston, 25, of Gonzales.
