THIBODAUX, La. -- A man identified as the Waffle House shooter who left three people with non-life-threatening injuries in Gray was arrested during a traffic stop Thursday, authorities said.
Video surveillance from business near the shooting incident identified 22-year-old Larry Chatman of Al Joseph Lane, who was driving a red colored Camaro that belonged to someone else from Thibodaux, Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said.
The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office responded to a shooting scene at the Waffle House Sunday around 2 a.m. in which three bystanders from a crowd of about 100 were shot outside of the restaurant, Terrebonne sheriff’s Capt. Dawn Foret said.
Many in the parking lot had come from a concert at the Evergreen Cajun Center. The three victims are recovering from their injuries, Larpenter said.
Chatman was transported to the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex and booked for three counts of attempted second degree murder with a $1 million bond.
Authorities spoke to the the vehicle owner earlier this week and learned that he was not involved in the shooting.
This investigation is ongoing. If anyone has any information concerning the shooting at the Waffle House, please contact Crimestoppers at 822-1111 for a potential reward or TPSO at 876-2500.
