A Louisiana State Trooper has been indicted in connection to a July 2018 shooting during a traffic stop in Baton Rouge.

State Police say the incident happened in early morning hours of July 10, 2018, when Trooper Kasha Domingue was involved in an on-duty shooting incident during the course of a traffic stop on Perkins Road.

After an investigation by the LSP's Bureau of Investigations, the investigative findings were provided to the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney’s Office.

On Thursday October 1, 2020, an East Baton Rouge Grand Jury delivered a decision to indict Domingue on charges of Aggravated 2nd Degree Battery and Illegal Use/Discharge of a Weapon. Domingue has been placed on paid leave pending the administrative investigation.

Domingue has been employed with LSP since August of 2015 and has been restricted to administrative duties at Troop A since the shooting incident.

“Louisiana State Police began an immediate investigation into the incident and has cooperated fully with the East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s Office,” stated Colonel Kevin Reeves, Louisiana State Police Superintendent. “I remain confident in our investigative process. Through the judicial system, I expect a fair and just outcome to this incident.”

Upon issuance of the Grand Jury warrant, Domingue will be arrested by State Police Detectives and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
