One man is dead following an officer involved shooting in Acadia Parish. Troopers say it happened around 3:00 this morning at a home in the 6100 block of Leger Road. Deputies say they responded to a domestic disturbance complaint, and when they got there, they found 41-year-old James Trahan armed with a shotgun. Two deputies were involved, and troopers tell us Trahan fired at the deputies, striking one of them in the leg. The deputies returned fire, killing Trahan.
The deputy who was shot has been transported to a local hospital where he underwent surgery. He is currently recovering in the hospital.
This case remains under investigation.
