Seven hospitalized in two shootings last week

Seven people have been hospitalized after two shooting incidents last week in Monroe.

The incidents occurred at an Apparel shop in the 3200 Block of Louisville and the second at occurred at a Bar in the 200 block of Sterlington Road.

At the apparel shop, officers found a male victim at the scene. He was airlifted to a regional hospital for treatment and is listed in stable condition. Police believe an argument that took place inside the business escalated in the parking lot when shots were fired.

A few hours later, around 1:30 a.m on April 3, Monroe police were called to the bar on Sterlington Road in reference to a shooting. When officers got to the scene, they discovered six victims suffering from gunshot wounds.

All the victims were taken to local hospitals for treatment; four were listed in stable condition and two were listed in critical condition.
