FBI Investigating Officer-Involved Shooting In Lafayette

Police Tape, iStock photoThe FBI is investigating an officer-involved shooting that happened this afternoon in Lafayette.

Cpl. Paul Mouton with the Lafayette Police Department says an officer shot the armed man — who remains unidentified — after responding to an emergency call that someone was shooting a pistol at a U.S. Postal Service truck around the 1100 block of West Gilman Street.

No one else was injured, including the mail worker, and the suspect is in stable condition at a local hospital.

LPD’s Officer-Involved Shooting Team is also investigating the incident.

At this point, the motive for the shooting remains unclear.
