Wife held in shooting of husband
An apparent domestic dispute led to the shooting of a man on a normally quiet street in north Crowley. The victim, Reginald Phillips, who was shot multiple times in the back,
is currently listed in serious condition at a Lafayette hospital after being transported from American Legion Hospital in Crowley. Family members have stated that one of the shots struck his spine leaving him unable to walk.
Crowley Police have charged his wife Kim Phillips, an employee of the Acadia Parish Sheriff's Office, with attempted second degree murder.
The shooting occurred just before 6 p.m. on the 800 block of N. Ave. L. Apparently the victim was removing some of his items from the home when an argument ensued leading to Kim Phillips retrieving a firearm and shooting her husband.
"There has been a history of domestic issues at this home," said Crowley Chief of Police K.P. Gibson. "This is not the first time we've been over there."
Crowley Police working with the District Attorney's office will be charging Phillips with attempted 2nd degree murder. Bond was set at $75,000.
"We still have a lot of leg work to do regarding this investigation," said Chief Gibson.
