BREAUX BRIDGE, LA (WAFB) -

Louisiana State Police are investigating shooting involving a Breaux Bridge police officer and a 17-year-old girl.

Just after 7:30 p.m. Sunday, officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Landry Street in Breaux Bridge, LA for the report of a disturbance. As the Officers were arriving on the scene, 17-year-old Darnesha Harris of Breaux Bridge, was driving a 2005 Toyota Corolla toward their vehicle.

One of the responding Officers got out of his vehicle and shot Harris. Harris was taken to a local hospital where she later died as a result of her injuries.

The bystander was transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries.

This case remains under investigation.
