2 Still Hospitalized with Wounds to Head and Stomach

The shooting occurred on Saturday night after "verbal confrontations" broke out during a 12-year-old's birthday party at a home in LaPlace, Louisiana, according to authorities

Despite the large number of attendees at the party, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff Mike Tregre said on Monday that no witnesses have come forward with information regarding the shooting.

Ugh.... I understand not wanting to corporate with the police but seriously a shootout at a child's birthday party over a verbal beef. Some people no longer need to be on the street. By not arresting anyone all you are doing is encouraging more violence and death.

4. Bringing a gun to children's birthday party is like bringing a condom to a family reunion. NT

Investigation Continues into Shooting at Birthday Party


Officers continue to investigate a shooting that left several juveniles injured the evening of April 17, 2021 during a 12-year-old child’s birthday party in LaPlace.
At 8:37 p.m., officers responded to the 600 block of Golfview Drive in reference to shots fired in the area. Upon arrival, officers learned multiple people were shot when verbal confrontations during a child’s birthday party led to gunfire.
Through further investigation, officers discovered nine juveniles were injured. Of the nine, seven were treated at a local hospital and released. Two remain in the hospital in stable condition.
Those injured were a 17-year-old male shot in the arm; a 16-year-old male grazed in the ribs; a 15-year-old male with a graze wound to the ankle; a 15-year-old male shot in the foot; a 14-year-old male shot in the leg; a 13-year-old male shot in the leg; and a 12-year-old shot in both legs.
A 16-year-old male shot in the stomach and a 14-year-old male with a gunshot wound to the head remain in the hospital.
Officers believe more than 60 young people were gathered at the party, and two groups of male juveniles with an ongoing feud met up at the house, began arguing and gunfire broke out. Officers have determined two guns were fired.
No arrests have been made.
Despite there being several witnesses at the party, Sheriff Mike Tregre said no one has come forward with information.
“Not one person has given a formal statement,” Sheriff Tregre said. “I am asking witnesses to come forward with information to help us learn more about what happened.”

Anyone with information about this shooting is encouraged to call the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office TIPS line at 985-359-TIPS, Juvenile Detective Ann Taylor at 985-359-8765 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111. Callers do not have to give their name or testify to be eligible for the up to a $2,500 reward from Crimestoppers.

12. I know you love 'accents', but I think you got the wrong one here.

Just a wild guess.

9. With nobody coming forth to give information to the police,

I have to wonder if this is some sort of rivalry between criminal gangs or families. Considering where most of the kids were shot, it looks like one of the shooters was shooting toward the ground, so they didn't want to kill anybody.
