Homicide Investigation


On the morning of Friday, March 2nd, Lafayette Police responded to a report of a shooting incident in the area of South 9th Street and Virginia Street. Officers arrived and located a victim, only identified at this point as an adult male.   The man is deceased and the case is being investigated by police as a homicide.


This does not appear to be a random act and it is not believed that the public is in any danger at this time. Police continue to investigate the scene and will we communicate any updates or information. 


Sgt. Matt Gard / Community Outreach & Crime Prevention


The fact a person has been arrested or charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law.
