A Louisiana groom allegedly shot a friend on his wedding day because he thought the man was having an affair with his new wife.
Devin Jose Jones, 30, and his bride were riding with the victim after the wedding on Saturday night when they hit traffic on I-10 in Louisiana, The St. John’s Parish Sheriff’s Office told L’Observateur.

Jones then tried to force his way inside the ambulance.
Police caught up to Jones on foot, and arrested him. Charges against the shooter were pending Sunday.
A bystander was also wounded in the hand after a bullet tore through the rear glass of their vehicle, police told the outlet.
The victims were airlifted to University Medical Center in New Orleans and are in stable condition.
