'Millionaire' wanted in Slidell on attempted murder charge


A man whom St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office investigators identify as Millionaire Forever Devine Route is wanted for a shooting that happened yesterday in the Slidell area.

Deputies responded to the shooting around 1:30 p.m., at a gas station near Gause Blvd. and Carroll Rd.
