LIVINGSTON---Livingston Parish Sheriff's Deputies have detained a suspect believed to be involved in a shooting off Lotts Lane in Watson Monday.

Just after 12p today, LPSO was dispatched to investigate a shooting off of Lotts Lane in the Watson area of Livingston Parish.

Sheriff Jason Ard says, ‘One victim, a male, was transported to a local hospital to be treated for more than one gun shot wound. The victim was alert when transported. We do have a suspect. At this point in the investigation, it appears this was not a random act. We believe the suspect & the victim were familiar with one another. This investigation is still very much ongoing.’

36-year-old suspect Michael Meade is in custody as of this report, LPSO said Monday afternoon.
