The St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating a shooting, which occurred in the 100 block of Villere Drive in Destrehan, Louisiana.
The incident began with a traffic crash on Ormond Boulevard just south of Villere Drive at approximately 4 p.m. on Tuesday. A black Ford pickup truck driven by Michael Woulfe (51) of Destrehan, collided with a silver Mercedes driven by Walter Tabary (78), also of Destrehan.
Woulfe did not stop after the crash and proceeded to his residence on Villere Drive just across from Cypress Lakes Country Club. Tabary, with his wife in the vehicle, followed Woulfe to the residence while calling 911.
After a few minutes, Woulfe got out of his truck and approached Tabary’s vehicle. An altercation ensued and subsequently, Woulfe was shot in the abdominal area. Tabary suffered facial injuries and was treated at the scene by EMS. Woulfe was airlifted to University Hospital and after undergoing surgery he is listed in guarded, but stable condition.
Detectives are investigating and reviewing multiple sources of available video footage, as well as interviewing witnesses.
Anyone with information on this incident is urged to call Detective Jenni Barrette with the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office at (985) 783-6807 or (985) 783-1135.
