A typical Sunday night on the campus of UL Lafayette turned scary for one student after being shot at randomly.

University police are investigating a drive by shooting that involved a BB gun. The incident took place Sunday the 9th around 8:30pm. According to police, a student was walking outside the Dupre Library off of E. St Mary Boulevard  when a passing vehicle shot at him. The student was struck in the hand and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

According to UL Lafayette police captain Charles Gisclair this is an isolated incident and they haven't worked something like this in several years. Captain Gisclair goes on to say a BB gun doesn't fall under the firearm law.

Right now they are concentrating on finding who shot the student. Since someone was hit, one of the charges will be battery.

According to sophomore Logan Soileau he feels like whoever fired the BB gun is just being really immature. Soileau said despite the incident, he does feel safe on campus.  UL Lafayette police are currently investigating several leads.

They want to re-assure students, faculty and parents the campus is safe. If you have any information regarding the shooting, contact university police at 337 482-6447.
