LaPlace Shooting Injures 2

Two people are hospitalized after a shooting in LaPlace.

St. John the Baptist Parish sheriff's deputies said they were called at about 1:56 a.m. Saturday in response to a shooting.

The sheriff's department said a 42-year-old man was found with gunshot wounds to his forehead and torso. Deputies said an 18-year-old woman was found with gunshot wounds to her neck and buttock.

Paramedics said the victims were taken to a hospital for non-life-threatening wounds.

Deputies said the victims told detectives a man came to the home at 1:30 a.m. asking for someone by name. The victims said they told the man no one by that name lived there.

Investigators said the man apparently came back two more times, and after being told for a third time the person he was seeking didn't live at the home, he fired shots at the house.

Anyone with information regarding this shooting incident should call St. John the Baptist Parish Detectives at 985-359-8769 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
