More Information on “Shots Fired”

The Red River Parish Sheriff’s Office has added some information to the “shots fired” investigation on Monday morning and subsequent lockdowns in Coushatta.

The Sheriff’s Office said, “Earlier this morning (Monday) Coushatta Police Officers and RRPSO deputies responded to a call of “shots fired” on Calvin St. A black male subject was reported to have fired shots at a parked vehicle. The incident was not random and stemmed from an ongoing domestic dispute.

The subject fled the scene on foot reportedly in the direction of a wooded area behind the hospital. As RRPSO deputies and detectives assisted the Coushatta PD in searching for the subject, as a precaution, the hospital was temporarily placed on lockdown.”  It has been reported to the Journal that Red River High was also placed on lockdown Monday morning.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, “At this time, the subject has not been located and the search continues.”
