Mandeville police make a second arrest during their investigation of a shooting that happened Sunday on the Tammany Trace.

Lacy Bryant, 22, of Ponchatoula is charged with one count of obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact.

Investigators say she hid a weapon that the accused shooter, Jesse Stowe, used during the crime. Bryant is Stowe's live-in girlfriend, according to police. She was arrested Tuesday evening.

Stowe was taken into custody shortly before midnight on Monday. He has been charged with armed robbery and attempted first degree murder. Detectives recovered several pieces of evidence, such as the victim's car and handgun which is suspected to be the weapon used in the crime.

Police say Stowe confessed to the crime and said that the incident stemmed from a drug transaction that had gone wrong.

Stowe and Bryant are being held in St. Tammany Parish Jail.

The victim remains in the hospital in critical condition.
