LAPLACE, La. — An argument between two workers at the Sonic Drive-In in Laplace led to a shooting near the restaurant's dumpster Wednesday night.

The 26-year-old victim was airlifted to a New Orleans hospital and is listed as stable. 

According to the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff's Office, Kamonte Robinson and the victim got into an argument earlier in their shift.
