BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A Louisiana man has been arrested four months after he is accused of shooting one person and trying to shoot three others after a fistfight.

Online jail records show that 24-year-old Joshua Huggins was arrested Saturday. WBRZ-TV reports Huggins faces charges, including on four counts of attempted first-degree murder, in the April 10 shooting.

He was being held on $491,000 bond and it wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney who could comment on the charges.

Baton Rouge police say Huggins got in a fistfight with a man after Huggins was accused of inappropriately touching the man’s sister. Police say Huggins later returned to the scene and shot the man multiple times. Police say Huggins then tried to shoot three of the man’s relatives, including the sister.
