    GOOD: Armed Robbery Victim Comes Out On TOP - Thibodaux, LA

    Police say victim shot robbery suspect | DailyComet.com | The Thibodaux Daily Comet | Thibodaux, LA

    THIBODAUX — Police said a city man was shot and wounded Thursday night while trying to rob another at gunpoint near a Canal Boulevard convenience store.

    Police responding to a report of a man shot just after 8 p.m. found 34-year-old Lee Diggs of 534 St. Charles St. lying on the ground near the Turner Motel with gunshot wounds to the hip and stomach areas, Thibodaux Police Chief Craig Melancon said.

    Just after officers arrived, Melancon said, they were approached by Terrence Triggs of Schriever, who told them he believed he had shot a man who was trying to rob him through his truck’s driver-side window.

    “He stated he had been robbed and in self-defense shot the individual who robbed him,” Melancon said this morning.

    Triggs had called 911 to report the shooting.

    Diggs was taken to Thibodaux Regional Medical Center where he is under police guard, and will be booked at a later time for armed robbery, Melancon said.

    Melancon said officers are looking for an alleged accomplice to the robbery.

    A warrant has been issued for 33-year-old Antoine Baptiste of Thibodaux.

    Melancon said Baptiste approached Triggs, the robbery victim, inside the convenience store.

    Triggs, who had been celebrating his birthday, was wearing a large gold chain. Relatives and friends had pinned several $100 bills to it, and during the robbery, the money was taken, police said.

    After the shooting, Melancon said, Baptiste ran from the truck and went to the wounded Diggs’ side, taking his pistol — described as a small-caliber weapon — and hiding it.

    The pistol was later found by police.

    No charges have been filed against Triggs.
    Good for Mr. Triggs, hopefully the accomplice is rounded up in short order.

    Have to wonder about Triggs though, walking into a convenience store wearing a large gold chain with $100. dollar bills pinned to it. Sounds kind of strange to me, but then I'm not from LA!

    Just a minute.....I'm from LA and I think that it is not only strange, but very stupid! As always - just my opinion.

    I didn't get the feeling that the money was still pinned to the chain, just that was how the money he lost was given to him.
