ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - An Alexandria man has been accused of armed robbery and attempted second-degree murder in reference to a shooting incident that occurred in the Kellyland subdivision in Alexandria on May 20.

The Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office says when they responded to the incident, witnesses claimed that Sampson De’shon Piper, 19, allegedly robbed some victims at gunpoint, shooting and injuring one of them in the process. The victim fled to a neighbor to call the police. RPSO says they located and took Piper into custody shortly after their arrival. Both Piper and the victim were taken to a hospital for treatment.
