Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced the arrest of a Galliano man for attempted murder after he shot another man Saturday evening. Jonathan Ramos-Vasquez (25, H/M) of Galliano was arrested at his residence following an investigation.

At around 6:20 p.m. on Saturday, March 21, deputies responded to a call of a shooting in the 200 block of Jerica Street in Galliano. Upon arrival to the neighborhood, deputies were flagged down by a man sitting in a pickup truck. As the deputies made contact with the man, they discovered he had been shot in the leg. Detectives also arrived on scene, and through investigation, they learned the victim arrived at a residence in the 200 block of Jerica Street where several men were present, including Jonathan Ramos-Vasquez.
