One man is dead after a Saturday shooting on Meadow Lane in Lafayette.

Police officers responded to a shots fired call in the 200 block of Meadow Lane and found a man suffering from two gunshot wounds, one to the upper torso and another to the lower torso. The victim was taken to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries, Lafayette Police spokesman Sgt. Wayne Griffin said.

The shooting happened around 4:45 p.m. Officers currently have no suspects and are working to determine what events preceded the shooting, Griffin said.

The scene of the shooting was less than a block off Congress Street. Several police units with flashing lights blocked public entrance onto Meadow Lane from Congress Saturday evening, and a crime scene technician laid at least three evidence markers on and beside a white Kia SUV parked alongside the road.
