Lafayette Shooting Suspect Arrested In Houma
HOUMA, La. (KPEL) -- The man believed to be responsible for the shooting of a Lafayette restaurant manager has been arrested in Houma.
According to Deputy Corey Britt with the U.S. Marshals Service, 21-year-old Christopher Wilson was arrested Tuesday night at a house in Houma following a weeks-long investigation.
Lafayette Police originally requested assistance from the marshals office on Nov. 1, Britt says. Tuesday, a team of six task force officers arrived in Houma, and after conducting a brief investigation, located and arrested Wilson.
Wilson was booked at the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office and was extradited to Lafayette where he was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center.
Wilson allegedly broke into the home of Zeus manager Yousef Balbeisi on July 2, shooting him in the midsection, according to Britt and Lafayette Police. At one point, Balbeisi was in critical condition, and his family urged the community to donate blood to help save his life.
