At Least The Police Responded Quickly

Three people were injured in a shootout which happened in the park lot of a Lafayette, Louisiana police station. I mean, when you’re shooting people in a police parking lot, you know this country is doomed.

Police in Lafayette are investigating a triple shooting that happened outside police headquarters.

At around 5:00 pm, one person was injured after two vehicles pulled up along side another vehicle and opened fire, Chief Glover says. That person was taken to the hospital, the condition is not known.

A spokesperson for the police department says three victims were hit by gunfire in the parking lot sometime in the 8:00 hour. No fatal injuries were reported. Lafayette Police tell us that the shooting did not involve any officers.

My division is one of the most violent in the city, and we’ve had shootings less than a block away from the building. We have yet to have a shooting in our parking lot – yet – so I guess we get a gold star.
