Shortly after 6:00 pm on February 10, 2020, Lafayette Police were dispatched after receiving a 911 call regarding a disturbance involving a weapon to a Townhome complex located in the 1000 block of Kaliste Saloom Rd. 

While investigating the complaint, a subject approached the officers and a physical confrontation ensued leading to the subject being shot and fatally wounded.  An officer involved in the incident received non-life threatening injuries and was treated by medical personnel.  The subject was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lafayette Parish Coroner’s Office.

As is protocol in an officer-involved shooting, Louisiana State Police have taken over the investigation, and the officers have been placed on paid administrative leave pending further investigation. 

This is an active investigation and updates will be published as they become available.
