Former Breaux Bridge Police Chief, Two Others Shot; Suspect Arrested
BREAUX BRIDGE, La. (KPEL) — The person believed to be responsible for shooting three people in their Breaux Bridge home has been arrested.
Ginny Higgins, a public spokesperson for the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office, says 28-year-old Darrin Duhon was arrested Saturday afternoon.
Duhon allegedly shot the former Breaux Bridge Police Chief Charlie Thibodeaux, his wife, and his mother-in-law. The three were taken to a hospital where they were listed in stable condition.
Higgins says Duhon fled the scene after the shooting, but he was later arrested by police in Abbeville on an unrelated charge. He was transported to the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office for “further criminal investigation,” Higgins says.
Duhon was booked into the St. Martin Parish Correctional Center on three counts of attempted first degree murder and one count of domestic abuse battery. His bond was set at $750,000 for the murder charges and $5,000 for the battery charge.
No motive has been established for the shooting.
