Lafayette teen booked in attempted murders

A Lafayette teen has been arrested on multiple counts of attempted murder in a shooting that left one person in stable condition at a local hospital.

Jacoby Andrus, 17, was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center in the incident in which he is accused of shooting at three people in the 100 block of Odile Street on Thursday at 6:15 a.m.

Witnesses said Andrus was in a vehicle, got out and fired three shots at three people, Cpl. Paul Mouton of the Lafayette Police Department said in a news release.

One person was hit in the leg, according to the release.

Andrus’ vehicle was located in the 200 block of Crestview Circle, less than a mile away. Mouton said the investigation remains open.

One dead in single-car crash in St. Landry

A Cankton man was killed in a single-vehicle crash early Friday in St. Landry Parish, State Police said.

Joseph Menard, 68, was driving a 2004 Jaguar south on La. 93 near La. 356 at 2:20 a.m. when he ran off the right side of the road as he approached a curve and struck several trees, Trooper 1st Class Stephen Hammons said.

Menard’s vehicle glided back onto the roadway, coming to a stop on the shoulder, Hammons said in a release.

The St. Landry Parish Coroner’s Office pronounced Menard dead at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt, Hammons said.

Hammons said investigators do not know if alcohol consumption was a factor. Toxicology samples were sent to State Police Crime Lab in a case that remains under investigation.

One sought in Friday home invasion

Lafayette police are looking for a man in an early Friday morning home invasion in the 400 block of Sunbeam Lane, officials said.

A lone gunman wearing a camouflage mask entered the home at 4:15 a.m. and left with a little cash and nothing else, Cpl. Paul Mouton said in a news release.

Though the man pointed the shotgun at the home’s occupants, no one was injured.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Lafayette Police Department at (337) 232-TIPS.
