Man shot at, child uninjured, in Lafayette drive-by shooting

A man driving east on Kaliste Saloom Road with a child in his car Tuesday night was shot at by another driver at the intersection of South Beadle Road, Lafayette police said.

The driver, 40, received minor injuries and his 5-year-old passenger was uninjured in the 6 p.m. shooting, which occurred in the 800 block of Kaliste Saloom Road, Cpl. Paul Mouton said.

The 5-year-old was in the back seat when a driver of a white four-door Pontiac Bonneville pulled alongside at a traffic light and began yelling, Mouton said.

“As the victim proceeded forward he heard a loud bang and his car door window shattered,” Mouton said.

The man made a quick turn onto South Beadle Road and called police.
