DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (BRPROUD) – The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office was called to investigate a report of multiple shots fired in a neighborhood around 4H Club Rd. on Wednesday night.

LPSO says they are aware of reports that there are “one or more victims being treated for what appears to be non-life threatening injuries at a hospital in Baton Rouge.”

Further investigation determined that a Baton Rouge man was shot in the hand at the scene in Livingston Parish.

Sheriff Ard says, ‘Keep in mind that this is still an ongoing investigation. What we have determined – using statements gathered so far – is that the residents of Nickens Lake Subdivision were not the intended targets. The scene involving the still undetermined number of shots fired unfortunately happened to unfold in this general area.’

LPSO suspects that there were two vehicles associated with the shooting scene and details about them are provided below:

  • 1 was disabled along 4H Club Rd
  • 1 has been identified as a dark colored sedan

Sheriff Ard is “asking those in this general area to check their home security footage around the time of the incident – 8:30 p.m. and, to work with our LPSO Detectives as we continue to process the scene.”

Law enforcement in East Baton Rouge Parish is working with LPSO on this case.

If you have any information that could help investigators, please call LPSO at 225-686-2241 x1 or Capital Region Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-STOP.
