BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – An East Feliciana Parish man accused of attempted murder is behind bars after his arrest at a Baton Rouge apartment.
Phillip Williams, 22, of Slaughter, is a convicted felon wanted on warrants from the Zachary Police Department with charges including attempted second-degree murder, aggravated assault with a firearm and illegal carrying of a firearm, according to an arrest affidavit. Those charges are related to an April 13 incident within city limits.
Williams was arrested Wednesday, Oct. 18, at 2403 Brightside Drive. Law enforcement served a search warrant and found and seized two Glock handguns.
The Slaughter man was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on the same day as his arrest. He faces multiple charges, including two counts of felon in possession of a firearm, one count of handling of machine guns and one count of being a fugitive from Zachary Police.
The affidavit also states that LSP has “an active arrest warrant for Williams for felon in possession of a firearm stemming from a search warrant executed at Williams’ residence, which resulted in the seizure of two firearms.”
The U.S. Marshals Service and FBI-Capital Area Gang Task Force helped in this investigation.
Williams had a $1,000 bond set through the Zachary City Court for a bench warrant on a possession charge. Bond for the other charges will be set Friday, Oct. 20.
