11pm last night, the Assumption Parish Communications Division received a call
from a female caller stating "her brother Neal Theriot was trying to kill
himself and that he had a knife to his throat”. Deputies responded and arrived
on scene at 109 Mary Ann Street
in Pierre Part and found that the subject had a self-inflicted cut to one of
his wrists. He was taken by ambulance to Teche Regional
where his wounds were treated and he was later released. About 6am this
morning, we received a second complaint from this address where the caller stated
that "Neal Theriot had punched her mother, Wanda Domingue, in the face and that
her mother had shot him in the leg.” Upon arrival, deputies found Domingue with
the gun in her hand. She placed the gun down and then Theriot exited the
residence stating that he had been shot. He was transported by Acadian
Ambulance under police escort back to Teche Regional
and was treated and released to the custody of the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s
Office this afternoon.
Investigators learned through interviews that
Neal Theriot attempted suicide after his mother, Wanda Domingue, refused to
give him his medicine. She indicated that he has hit her several times in the
past and that he has attempted suicide several times prior to this incident. While
he was being treated at the hospital, she told an Investigator and other
deputies on scene that if he returned to her residence, "she was going to shoot
him.” After she received several calls from her son upon his release from the
hospital, she then drove to Morgan City
and picked him up at the hospital and brought him back to Pierre Part. She
brought him back to the residence but told him he could not stay with her. She stated that he then became angry and
started knocking on the door of her room asking for his computer. She told him
"no” and he then kicked in the door and started pushing her around in the room.
She then grabbed her gun off the dresser and walked outside and Neal followed
behind. He then swung at her hitting her
on the left side of the face. While still standing after the hit, she stated
she fired the gun once hitting him in the leg.
