Deputies are still investigating a Sunday shooting near Ben Burge Park on Elvin Drive that wounded one man, a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said.
Initially, authorities said they believed a juvenile was hurt in the shooting, but that was not the case, Casey Rayborn Hicks said. The only person injured was a man in his 20s.
The shooting occurred about 7:30 p.m. at 1954 Elvin, Hicks said. The wounded man told deputies he was involved in a fight earlier that day and that he returned fire when he was shot later that evening.
No one has been arrested and no suspects have been named.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (225) 389-5000 or Crime stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
