UPDATE: Two people are hospitalized and one person is under arrest following an early morning shooting in Lafayette.

Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 100 block of Parklane Rd. at about 1:45 a.m. Tuesday, to answer a call about a shooting.

They found one shooting victim inside a home, and that person was taken to a local hospital.

They found a second victim and the suspect in a camper behind the house. They talked to the suspect, trying to get him to surrender. As the second victim deteriorated, SWAT forced entry into the camper to get that person out. They were sent to the hospital.

With the suspect isolated within a confined area of the camper, negotiations resumed until he surrendered without further incident, deputies say. David Kissel, 42, was booked with two counts attempted first-degree murder, second-degree kidnapping and false imprisonment.

Both victims are currently listed in stable condition. This investigation remains ongoing.
