Two people were standing in the 300 block of River Oaks when a man exited a passing vehicle and opened fire, according to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office.

The victims told deputies that they saw a silver-colored Chevrolet Cobalt driving past them slowly. The vehicle then stopped and an unknown black male exited the front passenger seat with what appeared to be an AK-47 assault rifle. The man then began firing at the two suspects. One of the victims was shot in the arm and leg and was transported to East Jefferson Hospital.

Anyone with information on this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-877-903-STOP.
