Ouachita Parish sheriff’s deputies are continuing to investigate a shooting on Standifer Avenue Monday, though authorities took one suspect into custody for attempted second-degree murder.

Aaron Dewayne Kelly, 35, of Monroe, was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center on the attempted murder charge, one count of armed robbery, one count of possession of marijuana, and one count of possession of crack cocaine.

Sheriff’s Office spokesman Glenn Springfield indicated there was only one victim, who was treated for his wounds at a local hospital.
