Donaldsonville man wanted in home invasion, shooting
GEISMAR - Sheriff's deputies in Ascension Parish are looking for a Donaldsonville man wanted in connection with a home invasion and kidnapping earlier this week.
Deputies say they were dispatched to a residence on Anderson Road in Geismar where there were reports of multiple shots fired. Investigators identified 22-year-old Morris Miles and four other individuals as suspects.
The homeowner told deputies Miles and the other suspects broke into the home, shot an occupant and then forced the homeowner to drive them away from the scene. According to the homeowner, Miles and the other suspects were armed with handguns and an assault rifle.
Deputies said the suspects were dropped off near an intersection of Highway 73 and Highway 30 in Geismar. The homeowner was not harmed, according to investigators. Miles and the unidentified suspects were last seen getting into a dark colored GMC SUV and driving away.
Investigators said they found evidence of multiple shots fired at the intersection of Anderson and Stevenson Road. Reports from deputies indicate a vehicle was struck by one of the bullets during the shooting, but the suspects fled the scene before deputies arrived.
Morris Miles is wanted for home invasion and second-degree kidnapping. Deputies say he is also wanted for questioning about the shooting that happened during the home invasion. He is considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Miles or the identities of the other suspects is urged to contact the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office at (225) 621-4636 or by texting 847411 to APSO's anonymous tip line from any cellular device.
