A Lafayette man was arrested for stalking and attempted murder.
25-year-old Steven Thomas was arrested by Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Deputies after a four week investigation culminated with arrest warrants being issued for six counts of stalking and three counts of attempted first degree murder.
On September 15, just after 1 a.m. Thomas is accused of firing multiple gunshots into the home of the victims who are known by Thomas.
The incident happened in Carencro in the 100 block of Lindsey Circle. Police say threatening text messages to family members of the victim were tracked back to Thomas which is the basis for the stalking charges.
Thomas will be booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center.
