UPDATE: Road Rage Shooter Turns Himself In; Taco Bell Shooting Under Investigation

UPDATE 6:51 p.m. The 57-year-old man involved in a road rage shooting Friday has turned himself in. Charles Guidry Jr. was arrested by the Lafayette Police Department and charged with attempted second-degree murder, aggravated assault by drive-by shooting and criminal damage to property.

ORIGINAL 3:03 p.m. The Lafayette Police Department says two shootings happened over the weekend.

According to the Lafayette Police Department, one man was shot at in his vehicle Friday afternoon on E. Martial Avenue. Police say around 4 p.m., an “enraged” white man who looked to be in his 50s shot once at the victim’s vehicle and fled.

The second shooting, police say, happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday at the Taco Bell on Congress Street near Bertrand Drive. When police responded to emergency calls at the late-night eatery, the victims reported that two black men wanted to fight, and they fired their guns as the victims tried to drive away. The shooters fled the scene in their own vehicle.

Police say no one was injured in either incident, although the two involved vehicles — and a building near the Taco Bell — were damaged.

Anonymous tips on either incident can be directed to Lafayette Crime Stoppers at 337-232-TIPS.
