Police on Friday named a third suspect in a shooting last Sunday in Lafayette that wounded a 17-year-old.
Hunter Lawrence, 17, of Lafayette, is wanted on a count of attempted second-degree murder in the afternoon shooting near Acadiana Park in the 1200 block of Alexander Street, according to a news release from the Lafayette Police Department.
Lawrence should be considered armed and dangerous, the release stated.
Another Lafayette 17-year-old, Kearick Joe, and a 16-year-old whose name has not been released, were arrested on Wednesday in the shooting and were booked on counts of attempted second-degree murder.
The victim, who was shot once in the side, was treated at an area hospital. Witnesses transported the victim from the site of the shooting to a location about two-and-a-half miles away on Frank Street, police said. Investigators processed both scenes.
The investigation remains ongoing.
Anyone with information on Lawrence’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Lafayette Police Department or the anonymous Crime Stoppers tip line at (337) 232-TIPS.
