MORGAN CITY — Detectives are investigating the wounding of two Morgan City men late Sunday near Railroad Avenue and 11th Street, an area where one of the victims was shot two weeks earlier, officials said.
Lawrence Blackburn, 36, was shot in the chest and is in stable condition at Teche Regional Medical Center, Morgan City Police Capt. James Blair said in a release.
Dwayne Clark, 36 was hit once in the hand and is in stable condition at University Hospital in New Orleans, Blair said.
Police received the call about shots fired at 10:29 p.m. Sunday, arriving to find the two men wounded.
Anyone with information can call detectives at (985) 380-4605.
The Sunday shooting is similar to one that occurred March 15, when Clark was shot and wounded in the same area. That shooting also remains under investigation.
