Four People Wounded in Raceland Shooting on Sunday Morning

Four People Wounded in Raceland Shooting on Sunday Morning

At least four people were injured in a shooting in the Alidore Community in Raceland over the weekend. Detectives are currently investigating the incident and are asking for the public's help to solve this case.

At around 2:15 a.m. on Sunday, June 14, deputies and detectives responded to a bar in the 200 Block of Williams Street in Raceland in reference to a call of shots having been fired, and Louisiana State Police and Lockport Police also arrived to assist due to the large crowd at the scene. Deputies also responded to a local hospital where four subjects, all in their 20s, had arrived having suffered gunshot wounds. Deputies would later learn that none of the injuries were life-threatening.

Through investigation thus far, detectives believe an argument at the bar turned physical and eventually led to an exchange of gunfire between at least two parties. Detectives are continuing their investigation, and they are currently following up on leads obtained through witnesses at the scene.

Anyone with further information on this case is asked to contact Sergeant Baron Cortopassi at (985) 532-4326.
