Ongoing investigation after fatal shooting at Kathy Apartments in Crowley


Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating a murder in Crowley.

It happened last night in the Kathy Apartment complex.

The victim was pronounced dead by the Acadia Parish coroner’s office.

News Ten’s Sylvia Masters is live in Crowley with more from the sheriff on this investigation. 

“They started working on the individual trying to resuscitate him. Unfortunately, the person passed.”

“Did y’all believe, did deputies believe that there could have been some arguments some disturbance that kind of occurred?”

“Well, we think it’s possible because speaking with the people that live in that vicinity, they stated that they did hear some loud noises. To them, it was either an argument or something of that nature so it’s very possible and I believe it either could’ve been a disturbance regardless of something that started right at that time or whether it’s a disturbance of a struggle we’re not sure at this point.” 

Sheriff Gibson said few residents were nearby at the scene last night and he’s not sure yet if the victim lives in the apartment complex.

When asked of the apartment complex is a problem area, sheriff Gibson says:

“Whether it’s either a drug activity or whether it be fights sometimes shootings, yes, we do have problems there. It’s one of those areas that’s isolated. It’s a circle inside on the edge of the city of Crowley within the city boundaries but it’s unincorporated so it’s ours so we do try to patrol those as much as we can but yes we’ve had quite a few problems there.”
