BREAUX BRIDGE - State police continue to investigate a shooting involving a Breaux Bridge police officer.

Troopers say officers were dispatched to a disturbance Sunday night.

As officers arrived to the scene, they say 17-year-old female, Darnesha Harris was driving a car toward their unit.

Police say Harris struck the front of the officers unit, then she placed the vehicle in reverse and struck a parked car on the roadway. After hitting the parked car Harris drove forward, traveled through a ditch, struck a bystander and a parked car in a driveway.

Troopers tell The Advertiser one of the responding officers discharged his weapon striking Harris. Harris was taken to a local hospital where she later died as a result of her injuries.
