Thibodaux Chief of Police Bryan Zeringue announced that the Thibodaux Police Department is investigating a shooting that happened shortly before 2:00 a.m. Sunday.
On Sunday, October 25th, at approximately 1:53 a.m., the Thibodaux Police Department responded to a shooting at a restaurant in the 800 block of North Canal Bouleavrd.
When Police arrived, they discovered a crowd and glass scattered throughout the parking lot. Although no witnesses came forward on scene, it was later learned that the victims of the shooting had drove themselves to a local hospital, due to one subject being struck by gunfire.
Upon further investigation, it was learned that a black male and two white females were approached by a black male suspect while inside the restaurant. The suspect began a verbal altercation with the male subject. These actions forced the male subject and the two females to exit the restaurant in attempt to leave the establishment. Before being able to enter his vehicle, the male subject was physically attacked by several suspects in the parking lot. The male and female subjects were eventually able to enter their vehicle, but not before gunshots rang out striking the vehicle as they fled the parking lot. The vehicle was struck multiple times during the gunfire, leading to all of the driver and passenger side windows being shattered and one of the females sustaining a gunshot wound. The victim sustained a non-life threating injury to her forearm and was later released from the hospital after receiving medical treatment.
Thibodaux Police Detectives who processed the scene are still investigating the incident. Although no arrests have been made at this time, detectives do have several leads in the case. Chief Zeringue asks the public to come forward with any information they may have regarding this incident.
