Suspect on run after 4 escape Louisiana home break-in

KEITHVILLE, La. (AP) — Louisiana sheriff’s deputies are looking for a suspect after four people escaped after a man broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home and shot and wounded a man living there.

Caddo Parish sheriff’s deputies were called to Keithville around 10 p.m. Wednesday.

Spokeswoman Cindy Chadwick said in a news release the man confronted the woman, the man living there and her children, ages 12 and 14.

Chadwick says the man living there was shot in the buttocks and was taken to a Shreveport hospital. The woman and children escaped without injury when the suspect came out after deputies arrived. Deputies say he fired at them and retreated into the house. No officers were hurt.

News outlets reported officers entered the home around 3 a.m. and discovered the suspect is missing.
