I've been handling the arrest report for Lafayette Parish for years now, and I don't ever remember a time when only one person, in a twenty-four-hour period, was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center. But, it's happened. At least this is the first time I remember only one person being booked into the jail in a very long time.

The following is a list of the people who were booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center for Wednesday, September 15, 2021:

I have contacted Senior Corporal Bridgette Dugas, Communications Specialist with the Lafayette Police Department to find out more details about this arrest.

Dugas says there was an argument between 26-year-old Abubaker Saleh and another person at a business in the 1300 block of East Pinhook Road at around 9:20 Tuesday night.

She says the two exchanged words then it is alleged that Saleh pulled out a gun and shot in the direction of the victim. Luckily, no one got shot.

Saleh was then arrested on a charged of Aggravated Assault with a Firearm.
