The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office arrested 22-year-old Terrance J. Derouen after he is accused of shooting in the direction of a woman and then hitting her in the head with the gun.

Deputies and detectives responded to Joe White Road after getting a complaint of gunfire in the Charenton area.

At about 1 o'clock Wednesday morning, deputies say Derouen is accused of screaming and cursing in front of the woman's mobile home.

Deputies say the man then fired off several shots in the direction of the woman, but he hit her home.

The woman says that's when the man walked up to her and hit her in the head.

Derouen later turned himself in at the Baldwin Police Department, and he was then arrested by sheriff's deputies.
