Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre and Golden Meadow Chief of Police Reggie Pitre reported a standoff with a barricaded subject ended peacefully Saturday afternoon. Just after 9:30 a.m., Golden Meadow Police Officers responded to an apartment complex on South Alex Plaisance Drive in reference to someone calling 9-1-1 and hanging up. Upon arrival, officers discovered Shane Louviere (45, W/M) was inside the apartment with a firearm, and he refused to exit the apartment. The Lafourche Parish Interagency Crisis Management Unit responded to the scene. At around 1:15 p.m., the standoff ended after negotiators convinced Louviere to exit the apartment unarmed. He was transported to a local hospital for evaluation. No charges have filed in this case. Due to the apartment’s proximity to LA Highway 3235, one of the northbound lanes was closed for about two hours during the incident.
