State police tell KATC that they are investigating an officer involved shooting that happened overnight in Lafayette.  Here is what we know right now: it happened at the Super 7 Motel on the Evangeline Thruway just south of I 10. No officer was injured in the shooting, but a suspect was transported to a local hospital.  The suspect’s condition is not known.  A witness tells KATC that they heard shouting followed by gunshots.

This incident is still under investigation.  We have a crew on the scene and we will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
