Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - A man wanted for attempted murder in E. Baton Rouge Parish was arrested today in Lake Charles.

Roy Haynes, 31, of Baton Rouge, allegedly shot a woman on O’Neal Lane in Baton Rouge Tuesday afternoon.

The victim was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. According to deputies, the victim stated that her ex-boyfriend shot her with a semi-automatic firearm in the shoulder during an argument in front of her two children.

The victim reportedly told deputies that as she was lying on the floor, she played dead in fear that he might shoot her a second time. Haynes allegedly returned to the bedroom and kicked the victim in the stomach.

EBRSO homicide detectives obtained a warrant for Haynes on possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and attempted second-degree murder.

Calcasieu Parish deputies arrested Haynes during a traffic stop, according to Calcasieu officials.

Calcasieu deputies and Louisiana State troopers are assisting East Baton Rouge officials with executing a search warrant at home on W. LaGrange Street.
