HOUMA, La. (AP) - State police say a 29-year-old man accused of fatally stabbing a relative in Houma has been booked with first-degree murder.

Trooper Evan Harrell says Alvaro Fabian Garcia was booked into the Terrebonne Parish jail Tuesday after being released from University Hospital in New Orleans.

Harrell say a Houma police officer shot Garcia in the shoulder after an altercation ensued when the officer tried to arrest Garcia. He says the officer had responded to a report of a burglary Saturday when he witnessed the stabbing. The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1wNCHM5 ) police have not released the victim’s name.

Garcia’s bond is $1 million.

It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
