Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced a reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of two men wanted in connection with a shooting incident which occurred in Raceland shortly after midnight Thursday night.
Detectives made contact with the victim Friday, February 17 at a local hospital. Through investigation, detectives learned the victim had been traveling from the rear of Brocato Lane heading toward LA Highway 308 and stopped at a stop sign at the intersection with Easy Street. While stopped, the victim was approached by two black males, one from either side of the victims vehicle. The suspect on the passenger side had a gun and demanded the victims cell phone, and the suspect on the drivers side took the phone from the victim.
