LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Sulphur Police made an arrest in Last week's shooting of a pregnant woman and  her friend. Police arrested 21 year old Linus Cahee and charged him with three counts of attempted murder.

"Upon our officers arrival we found two victims that had been shot," Said Sulphur Police Chief Chris Abrahams.

Investigators believe Cahee approached the front of the victim's vehicle and began shooting, striking a male passenger twice in the left arm and twice in the back, and an unidentified pregnant woman, who was 32 weeks pregnant at the time.

"The female had an emergency C-section. Both the mother and the child are doing great. The other male victim that was in the vehicle was released and doing fine also," said Chief Chris Abrahams.

Cahee is now being charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, one count of aggravated assault, and three counts of attempted second degree murder.

Another passenger in the front seat was not injured. Investigators are not saying what lead to the shooting. Names of the victims are not being released at this time due to the ongoing investigation in this case. Cahee's bond is set at $335,000.
