Lafayette police are after two men involved in a shooting last night at a Section 8 apartment complex on Louisiana Avenue.

Lafayette Police Department spokesperson Cpl. Paul Mouton said two black men in a small to midsize car approached a man at Holy Family Apartments around 11:30 p.m. and asked for a cigarette. The men then attempted to rob the victim and shot him in the upper chest as he fled.

The victim was transported to a hospital in stable condition, Mouton said.

No additional descriptions about the car or the two suspects are available, but anyone with information about the incident or the identity of the suspects is encouraged to call Lafayette Police or Crime Stoppers at 232-TIPS.
