A 60-year-old accused of shooting his daughter’s boyfriend with a shotgun during a fight over missing marijuana was arrested Saturday afternoon. Dwight Landry, 151 Millenium Ave., Houma, accused the 26-year-old of taking the drugs, Terrebonne sheriff’s deputies said. As the 26-year-old walked away from Landry’s house, Landry picked up a .410-gauge shotgun and fired.
Several of the shotgun pellets broke the 26-year-old’s skin and lodged in his heart, police said. The 26-year-old was taken to Terrebonne General Medical Center, where the pellets were removed. He is expected to make a full recovery, police said.
Landry, during questioning, admitted to shooting the 26-year-old, though added that he did it after his daughter’s boyfriend punched his wife in the ribs. The victim denied this allegation, police said. Landry is charged with aggravated second-degree battery. He is being held in the Terrebonne Parish jail in lieu of a $150,000 bond.
