At newstime Sunday, KATC has not been able to confirm the name of the victim in a Friday night shooting. Ville Platte police say on Friday evening a man forced his way into Tat Nail Salon on West Main Street in Ville Platte, he demanded money, fired several shots, striking the owner of the business who later died at the hospital as a result of his injuries. We know the victim in this violence is Asian-- he and his wife are the owners of the salon and loyal customers tell us the couple was expecting another baby.
Police need information to catch this suspect: They are urging anyone who can help investigators to call 363-1313.
Join us on KATC at 10 for an eyewitness account of the shooting, we'll talk to a woman who was in the salon as it happened.
