Prairieville home shot multiple times in drive-by Monday afternoon
PRAIRIEVILLE - A home in Bullion Crossing was shot multiple times Monday afternoon, according to deputies.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office said no one in the home was hurt in the shooting that took place around 5:45 p.m. on Corvette Drive. The shooters left the area before deputies arrived.
“I'm 50 years old and I've never been so frightened in my life,” one neighbor told WBRZ. “I was on a work-related call Monday afternoon and my sons were home, and I really thought that it was fireworks. I didn't even move from my table. My first thought is what person is shooting fireworks you know and it happened so fast. My son was in his room, and he came out and said 'mom there's been a shooting.'"
"We do believe this an isolated situation and our detectives are actively investigating this shooting. We will do everything in our power to find the people involved in this shooting, and bring them to justice,” Sheriff Bobby Webre said in a statement.
Deputies said Myron Mills was a person of interest in the case.
Detectives are also looking for a Kia Rio 4-door sedan, likely between the years of 2016-2023. The vehicle does not appear to have any license plate but may have a paper tag or placard in its place.
The shooting happened as families were likely returning home from work to the newly-developed, suburban community, off Airline Hwy. near the intersection with Hwy. 42. Bullion Primary School is about 1,000 feet from where the shooting happened.
Neighbors describe it as generally a nice neighborhood.
“It's a great neighborhood. The school being added a few years ago absolutely made it for young children and young families to be able to be here,” one person said.
But the shooting has had some lasting effects.
“When my ice maker drops now I've shuddered the last few days. When you rang my doorbell, it startled me. so those were feelings that we didn't have prior to Monday."
Anyone with information regarding the shooting should call (225)621-4636.
