Details were very sparse, but Jasper County Sheriff Mitchel Newman said Wednesday that a man accused of shooting a woman over the weekend in Ryall Acres was captured and arrested in Louisiana on Tuesday.

Deputies had been searching for 32-year-old Nicholas Hauffe since the incident occurred late Sunday night at a home on County Road 168. The victim, 42-year-old Dana Hauffe, suffered a gunshot wound to the leg.

The woman was later reported to be doing very well.

It’s expected that the suspect will be charged at some point in the next few days.
