Deputies seeking suspect after overnight shooting in Ascension Parish
BATON ROUGE - Deputies are investigating the shooting of a man on Old Jefferson after an altercation Monday night.
According to the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office, one victim was shot by an unidentified subject at a home on Jessica Street in Prairieville just before midnight.
