Detectives investigate ‘shots fired’ incident in Campti on Sunday evening

Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Detectives are investigating a “shots fired” call that resulted in a vehicle being damaged in Campti on June 26 around 5:39 am, according to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Stuart Wright.
NPSO Patrol Operations Bureau deputies responded to reports of a 2008 Toyota Corolla being damaged by apparent gunfire while parked at a residence in the 100 block of Vaughn Street in Campti.
Deputies say shortly after they arrived on scene they spoke with the complainant. Deputies learned that on June 25 between 9:30-10:30 pm the complainant, while in bed, heard multiple gunshots near her residence. This caused the complainant to get on the floor and take cover for protection.
Luckily, no one was injured-the complainant stated the gunfire lasted briefly.
Around 5:30 am the next morning, the complainant walked outside and found a relative’s car damaged by a bullet hole.
Deputies gathered information for an offense report, photographed and processed the crime scene for evidence.
The incident is being investigated by the NPSO Criminal Investigations Bureau.
Deputies also responded to a “shots fired” call on June 25 at approximately 9:48 pm in the 100 block of Mill Street in Campti.
Deputies say the vehicle left the area prior to their arrival with no description given.
Detectives ask that if anyone has information to please contact the NPSO Criminal Investigations Division at 357-7830.
