Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre is asking for the public’s help in investigating two shooting incidents that occurred in Thibodaux on Tuesday night. A man was injured in one of the shootings.
Just after 9 p.m. on March 31, 2020, deputies responded to a report of shots fired on W. Camelia Drive in Thibodaux. Upon arrival, deputies found a 16-year-old had been shot in the leg. He was transported to a hospital for treatment. The injury was not life-threatening.
Later that night, just after 10:30 p.m., deputies responded to the Abby Subdivision in Thibodaux in reference to a report of shots being heard in the area. Shell casings were located in the area, but detectives were unable to find anyone who witnessed the shooting.
