Three men in stalled vehicle on I-10 were shot at and robbed
Three men whose vehicle stalled on the shoulder of Interstate 10 over the Bonnet Carre Spillway at 12:48 a.m. today (April 21) were robbed at gunpoint and shot at by one of three suspects at the scene.

While they were inspecting the vehicle, a green colored Pontiac sedan stopped behind the stalled vehicle and a black male approached the victims, offering assistance, according to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office.

When the victims declined, two more black male men exited the Pontiac and approached the victims. One of them aimed a handgun at them and demanded money.

A brief struggle ensued between the victims and suspects, according to the Sheriff’s Office. 

The armed suspect fired the handgun into the air and again demanded money. 

The victims gave them their money, a wallet and a cellphone.

The three black males returned to their Pontiac and discharged about four shots at the victims as the suspects fled the scene.  One of the victims sustained two bullet wounds.  The gunshot victim was transported to a hospital in New Orleans where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries. 

The Sheriff’s Office is asking for help with locating the suspects.

Suspect one is described as a black male, approximately 5’4” tall, with a thin build.  He is believed to be in his mid to late 20’s in age.  He was wearing a gray or black colored hoodie.      Suspect two is described as a black male, approximately 5’4” tall, with a thin build.  He is believed to be in his mid to late 20’s in age. He was clad in a brown colored hoodie. 

Suspect three is described as a black male, much taller than the other two suspects.  He is believed to be in his late 30’s to early 40’s in age. He was clad in a red colored shirt.

If anyone believes they know the identity of the suspects, may have possibly witnessed the incident or has any information pertaining to the Pontiac sedan should call Detective Jody Weems at (985) 783-1135 or  (985) 783-6807. 

Anyone with information regarding the incident can also contact Crime Stoppers at 1-877-903-STOP.  Citizens do not have to give their name nor testify and could receive up to $2,500.
