Lafayette shooting victim identified

Detectives with the Lafayette Police Department have identified the man killed in a Sunday night shooting as Ramsey Demouchet, 46, of Lafayette, according to a news release from the department.

About 11 p.m. Sunday, police were called to the 100 block of California Street regarding a shooting and found Demouchet’s body in the backyard of a residence, police said. Responding officers located the shooter in the immediate area.

The shooter’s identity will not be released while the matter remains under investigation, said Cpl. Nicole Benoit, a spokeswoman for the Lafayette Police Department.

The shooter told officers he was across the street from his house when he observed an unknown person entering his residence without his permission, police said. The shooter allegedly armed himself with a gun and went to the residence to investigate. Once at the residence, he confronted the alleged burglar through the window and fired two shots at him, police said.

The victim then exited the residence into the backyard and the homeowner fired two more shots at him, police said. The shooter then returned to his home and called 911 to report the shooting.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing, police said, and anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to call the Lafayette Police Department or (337) 232-TIPS.
