Sports bar shooting sends two to the hospital


Police in D'Iberville are searching for the man they say robbed a couple, and fled the scene.

According to D'Iberville Police Captain Clay Jones, police received a call around 11:50 p.m. Wednesday about a shooting at Reno's Sports Pub located at the corner of Rodriguez Street and Gorenflo Avenue. When police arrived they found a man and woman in their vehicle, both with gunshot wounds.

Police say the couple was sitting in a car in the pub's parking lot when a black male wearing a ski mask approached the window with a gun demanding property from the victims. After the couple gave the suspect what he wanted, he then reportedly fired a weapon, hitting both the man and woman in the shoulder.

The victims were transported to a local hospital where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries and released.

Police are now looking for the suspect involved. He is described as a black male in his twenties. He was last seen wearing a ski mask, a dark shirt and dark jeans.

Anyone with any information about the shooting are asked to call the D'Iberville Police Department at 228-396-4252 or Crimestoppers at 877-787-5898.
