UPDATE: A suspect was arrested after a shooting that took place at a Lafayette apartment complex this evening.

Police say that the suspect stole a vehicle from a business earlier that night. A traffic stop was attempted but quickly transitioned in a high-speed chase that ended at the Peppertree Apartments on Robley Drive.

Upon finding the stolen car, an officer fired a shot but did not shoot the suspect.

The suspect then allegedly rammed their car into a police unit and exited the vehicle on foot.

The suspect sustained minor injuries. No officers were injured.


Lafayette police are responding to reports of shots fired on Robley Drive near its intersection with Ambassador Caffery.

This is a developing story.
