PRAIRIEVILLE, LA — A Gonzales man is behind bars tonight after entering a home and threatening to kill a victim and his wife.
On August 29, deputies were called to a home in the 15000 block of Beau Jon Avenue in Prairieville for a disturbance involving a gun.
When authorities arrived, a woman yelled out that the disturbance was taking place in a bedroom.
Upon entering, they found an older black male and a younger black male fighting on the floor. Deputies attempted to place the younger male, later identified as Carlos Jackson, 30, in handcuffs, but he began fighting with deputies.
After detaining Jackson, officials saw a rifle lying next to him, and began questioning him.
It was learned through the investigation that Carlos and the victim were having disagreements, which led to a fight between the two over the gun.
During the confrontation, Carlos repeatedly yelled out that he was going to kill the victim and his wife. The victim advised deputies that he heard at least three shots fired inside the house while he was fighting with Carlos over the gun.
Jackson was arrested and charged with Attempted First-Degree Murder, Home Invasion, Battery of a Police Officer, Criminal Trespass, Simple Criminal Damage to Property and Resisting an Officer With Force or Violence.
