8-yr-old child shot overnight while sitting in a vehicle

An 8-yr-old girl is in stable condition after she was shot once in the butt.

The shooting happened in the 25000 block of Pardue Rd. in Springfield around 1:30am on May 12, 2022 in Livingston Parish. Deputies responded to a call for “shots fired” and found a child who had been shot.

“What we do know at this point is that a dark colored sedan was spotted at the time,” said Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard. “Multiple shots were fired towards a residence striking a vehicle that the juvenile was sitting in. This is actually the second shooting incident within two days along this same stretch. No injuries were reported then. We’re asking anyone with information to please come forward.”

It remains an ongoing investigation.

Officials are asking anyone with information on the case to call LPSO at 225-686-2241 x1 or Greater Baton Rouge Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-STOP.
