Man facing charges for shooting up a home in Lake Charles

Shooting up a house isn't ever a good idea. A man is facing criminal charges for doing just that in Lake Charles. He is accused of shooting into the bathroom of a home of a former acquaintance.

The man who was shot is in critical condition. He had to have emergency surgery and was placed in intensive care after the surgery. A woman at the home also suffered injuries from the glass shards that went flying in the shooting.

The man who is facing charges is facing an attempted first-degree murder charge. He is being held at the Calcasieu Correctional Center with a bail of $120,000.

When he was being questioned by police officers about the incident, the man admitted that he did participate in it. The assault rifle that was used in the crime was found on the property where he was located.

Fortunately, children who were in the home at the time it was shot up weren't harmed in this incident.

Even though this man admitted his involvement in the incident, he can still present a defense against the charge. This might not be easy, but he can still put forth the effort.

Anyone who is facing criminal charges of any sort should work quickly to learn about their options for a defense. This must take the circumstances of the case, as well as the points that must be present for the charges, into account. Once you know the options, you can think about each one so that you can decide what course you want your defense to take.
