In a weekend that has produced multiple shootings near Four Corners and on Ambassador Caffery, as well as a car crashing into the Rio Parade route before it even began, the latest incident happened just before 1:30 a.m. in the 400 block of South Buchanan Street as Lafayette Police found a male suffering from a gunshot wound.

Investigators say several males were involved in an altercation when one of them pulled out a handgun and shot the victim once. The suspect fled the scene. The victim is in a local hospital in stable condition.

If you have any information, investigators need to talk to you. Please contact the Lafayette Police Department or Lafayette Crime Stoppers at (337) 232-TIPS.
