Authorities seek suspect in Lafayette shooting


Lafayette Parish Sheriff deputies are investigating a shooting Wednesday in the 100 block of Calypso Lane in Lafayette Parish.

Authorities say a 13-year-old male had a single gunshot wound to the torso. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he remains with non-life threatening injuries.

The 13 year old victim had traveled to Lafayette from Baton Rouge with an adult relative to meet a juvenile female he met on Facebook. The three people were visiting in a car in the 300 block of Calypso just down the road from the friend's home when a car pulled up behind the victim and gunshots began. 

The two other people in the car were not injured.  Deputies have not been able to establish a motive for the shooting and asking that anyone with information to contact Lafayette Crime Stoppers at 337 232-8477.
