Lafayette police Saturday were searching for two young men wanted in a shooting that injured a girl, 17, as she was leaving a football game at Northside High School Friday night with friends.
Witnesses told police the girl was walking from the stadium to the front of the school with friends around 9:55 p.m. when they heard gunshots. The victim tried to get out of the area but was shot in the right arm, said Cpl. Paul Mouton, a Lafayette Police Department spokesman.
Mouton said the victim was then hit by a car leaving the parking lot at the school, 301 Dunand Drive, and injured her leg. The victim was able to get into a vehicle, which took her to the intersection of West Willow at Louisiana Avenue, Mouton said. He said she was met there by emergency personnel and transported to a local hospital where she was in stable condition.
A school bus and SUV in the parking lot also were damaged from the gunshots, Mouton said. He said the shooters were described as two young black men who were possibly driving an older brown car.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Lafayette Police or Crime Stoppers at 232-TIPS.
