Eldridge Thomas Jr. has been arrested after an argument between neighbors turned into a hospital visit for the other person.

Scott Police say it Tuesday morning in the 100 block of Marina Loop when officers responded to the disturbance. Before officers got there, Thomas left the scene in his truck with his wife.

An officer was later able to pull over Thomas' truck after a brief chase.

The victim is in stable condition after officers say Thomas shot the neighbor with a gun from his home.

Thomas sits in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center charged with Attempted 2nd Degree Murder, Home Invasion and Aggravated Flight from an Officer.

Officers continue to investigate.
