Lafayette Police say the shooting incident Tuesday morning along Foreman Drive involved a person on foot and the driver of a vehicle.

Police tell KATC that the person on foot allegedly shot at a vehicle along Foreman Drive. The driver of the vehicle then allegedly fired back at that person.

Sgt. Robin Green with LPD says the vehicle then crashed into an AC unit and building of a nearby apartment complex before driving off.

Police are still investigating the incident but currently have no leads on suspects. No injuries have been reported.

As of 11:15 a.m., the roads around the area were opened and the lockdowns at two schools, Lafayette High and SJ Montgomery Elementary School were lifted.

Green says they responded to the call at 10:00 am on Tuesday, and shortly after, schools were locked down as a precaution.

An investigation is ongoing and information will be updated.

KATC's Taylor Toole was out near the scene earlier today.
