Lafayette Crime Blotter for April 7, 2014

Lafayette police are looking for a man who fired a gun Saturday night as he attempted to rob a convenience store only to be scared away by return fire from a store employee.

The attempted robbery happened about 8 p.m. at H&C Neighborhood Food Mart in the 700 block of North St. Antoine Street, said Cpl. Paul Mouton, a Lafayette police spokesman.

A black man described as 6 feet to 6 feet two inches tall with a medium build entered the store armed with a black revolver, Mouton said.

A store employee told detectives that the man demanded money from the worker, then fired a single gunshot, at which point the employee fired back.

Apparently, the employee and the robber were not hit during the exchange of gunfire, Mouton said.

Police ask anyone with information to call (337) 291-8600 or Crime Stoppers at (337) 232-8477.
