A 27-year-old man is in critical but stable condition today after he was shot in a drive-by shooting in Grand Coteau last night, family members tell KATC.

The young man had surgery and is sedated but the signs so far are good, his family tells us.

The young man was standing in a friend's yard last night when someone drove past and started shooting, the family says.

We reached out to Grand Coteau Police last night and today. The shooting happened on Louise Street, they say. they are working to confirm it was a drive-by shooting.

This is a developing story.
