Calcasieu Parish Deputies are searching for a woman wanted in connection to a Tuesday morning shooting in Lake Charles.

The sheriff's office say that at around 3:30 a.m. deputies were called to a residence on Eugene Lane in Lake Charles after reports of a shooting.

Upon arrival deputies located two victims inside the residence suffering from gunshot wounds. The two victims, ages 10 and 28, were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injures.

Detectives say they were told by residents in the home that 23-year-old Kalley N. Murray of Sulphur was responsible for the shooting. The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office says that Murray is believed to be in the Lafayette area.
