Jockey Lot Employee Shot Dead During Carjacking
Last night the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office was called out to the Jockey Lot at 3011 Northwest Evangeline Thruway after the report of a shooting around 11 o'clock.
Deputies arriving on the scene found that 49-year-old Michael Patin of Arnaudville had been shot once in the back. Witnesses say the man was shot during a carjacking.
Patin died later at a Lafayette Hospital shortly after arriving there.
Deputies say they have several suspects in custody at this time, but because of the ages of those involved, they will not give any additional information out about the suspects.
The investigation is ongoing.
