Rapides deputies were called to the 10 thousand block of LA Highway 1 South Sunday afternoon after witnesses heard gunshots.

Authorities made contact with 25 year-old Kenneth Paul Fields Junior, who at first appeared to be a witness, but detectives later determined was the shooter.

Detectives learned a man was in the hospital being treated for a gunshot wound to the leg. The victim told police he and Fields were in the middle of a transaction when Fields shot and robbed him.

The victim was treated and released and Fields was booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center.
