On April 2, at approximately 5:32 p.m., officers responded to a “shots fired” call at the 300 block of Dutel Street. Officers quickly determined that two subjects had been shot. One of the victims was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The other victim died as a result of the shooting.

COVID-19 cases skyrocket in state

“If you wait for these numbers to grab your attention, guess what? You just let the virus win,” a visibly distressed Governor John Bel Edwards reiterated of Louisiana’s new Coronavirus cases at a Thursday afternoon press conference. State COVID-19 cases soared Thursday to a one-day record of 2,726 new cases as a tidal wave of test results arrived mostly from private testing companies.
