Houma Police Department

The Houma Police Department is looking for a suspect in a weekend shooting that injured a local victim.

On Aug. 2 at approximately 9:40 p.m., HPD officers responded to the 100 block of Morrison Avenue in reference to multiple gunshots having been fired.

HPD then received a call from a local medical facility in reference to a 31-year-old male who had been shot.

As the investigation continued, officers learned that the victim was traveling on Morrison Avenue from Hollywood Boulevard Avenue when an unknown suspect in an unknown vehicle started firing shots at his vehicle.

After the shots, the victim said he felt like he had been hit, so he drove himself to the hospital for treatment.

The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and has been released.

At this point in time there has not been a suspect identified and a motive has not been established in the shooting and anyone with information can contact the Houma Police Department at 985-873-6371. Persons with information can also submit a tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers Bayou Region by phone at 1-800-743-7433 or online at www.crimestoppersbr.org.
