 St. Helena Parish Sheriff’s deputies say the details are still sketchy in a Tuesday night shooting that left one woman dead at the Tall Timber Truck Stop in St. Helena Parish. The shooting, which occurred at the truck stop along LA 16, happened around 8:00 Tuesday Night.

As of 11:00AM Wednesday Detective Joe Chaney has confirmed that one woman has been arrested in connection with the shooting, but said there may be more arrests to come.

Chaney said the shooting seems to have stemmed from an earlier argument between the victim and the woman now in custody.

The name of the victim and the woman under arrest are not being released at this time as deputies continue their investigation. Chaney said the victim was a female in her mid-20's.
