A young man is dead; his room mate critically wounded after a violent incident on Mckinley Street near the UL campus: The victims live in a yellow beige one story house and shortly after 2 o'clock on Thursday another room mate came home and found the two had been attacked.
"They're in their young 20s, one died and one was critically injured, he was taken to a local hospital," said Sgt. Mark Francis, Lafayette Police.
Police were not releasing details about the nature of the injuries Thursday night, they also don't have a time-line, but some neighbors speculate that the attacks could have occurred Wednesday night or in the early morning hours on Thursday. Wednesday night is a big party night and Mckinley is often crowded with rowdy college students, neighbors say.
"It's all college kids who live around here," said Phillip Young, a young UL student who also lives in the neighborhood.
Lafayette Police were still combing the area at the time of this posting and asking for the public's help in developing leads.
