St. Bernard deputies say they were called to a shooting scene at about 6:00 Monday night in the 2500 block of Edgar Drive in Violet.

They say one man shot another in the leg and both men were inside an apartment.  The department’s SWAT team set up a perimeter.  After a few hours, both men walked out of the apartment.

Deputies say the man who was shot in the leg was taken to the hospital for treatment for a wound that was described as not life-threatening.

The other man, identified as 31-year-old Brandon Robinson, was taken into custody.  But as of Monday night, deputies were uncertain of the charges that they would file in the case.
