One person was arrested and another is wanted in connection with a shooting incident in Church Point.

Police say the shooting incident happened on February 02, 2022, at around 2:00 pm. At that time, officers with the Church Point Police Department responded to a call of shots fired on N Kelly Street.

Officers say a residence had been hit twice by gunfire; a truck was hit once. The projectile from the shooting, they say, went through three walls and landed in a hallway. The home was occupied at the time by two small children and two adults.

Several more arrests are pending in this incident as further investigation continues.
