Groom shoots friend after wedding for alleged affair with wife

A Louisiana groom reportedly shot a friend on his wedding day because he thought the man was having an affair with his new wife.

Devin Jose Jones, 30, and his bride were driving the victim after the wedding on Saturday night when they hit traffic on I-10 in Louisiana, the St. John’s Parish sheriff’s office told L’Observateur.

The two men started arguing in the car around 11 p.m. Then Jones pulled out his gun and chased the friend between cars along the freeway, shot and injured his leg, the police said.

Jones’ wife, meanwhile, stopped an ambulance and told staff her husband tried to kill her before barricading himself in it, police said.

Jones then tried to break into the ambulance.

The police caught up with Jones on foot and arrested him. Charges against the shooter were pending on Sunday.

A passerby was also injured in the hand after a bullet hit the rear window of their vehicle, the police said at the point of sale.

The victims were flown to University Medical Center in New Orleans and are in stable condition.

The investigation continues, the authorities said.
