I hate to report tragic news in our city when there is so much life in our town, but last night, there was a report of a shooting at 935 North Shattuck Street here in Lake Charles. Once the police arrived, they saw a 10-year-old and a 17-year-old had both been shot.

The 10-year-old was transported to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. The other victim was transported to a Lafayette hospital, and has been listed in stable condition.

If you have any news or information that could assist with the capture of the assailant, please call Crime Stoppers at 337-491-1311.
