LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) — Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory, law enforcement and fire officials addressed public safety measures ahead of a planned demonstration this weekend in Parc Sans Souci.
Lafayette Parish Sheriff Mark Garber said his department is handling the demonstration no differently than other public events, citing Mardi Gras parades as an example.
There will be some roads in the area blocked off for the demonstration and gun-free zones will be put in place, Garber said.
We will provide more information from Lafayette Consolidated Government as it becomes available today.
