A man suspected of wounding another in a recent Seymourville shooting turned himself in to authorities last week, Blair Favaron, chief of detectives for the Iberville Sheriff's Office, said Monday.

Morquincy Mosby, 29, of 58115 Gay Street, Plaquemine, was booked on an attempted second degree murder charge, records showed.

The victim in the case was in guarded condition at an area hospital after being shot in the stomach and arm in a June 4 incident that occurred around midnight near the intersection of Barrow and Hebert streets, Favaron said.

After identifying Mosby as the suspected shooter, the sheriff's office turned the case over to the U. S. Marshal's Office, Favaron said. He said the federal unit located Mosby in Baton Rouge and contacted the suspect's family, after which Mosby surrendered.
