Crowley, LA (KPEL News) - Acadia Parish Crime Stoppers and Crowley Police are looking for the suspect in the shooting of a 5-year-old Crowley, Louisiana, girl earlier this month. They are also hoping to identify another suspect. A cash reward is available for anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest.

On March 7, 2024, the little girl was walking home from the bus stop with her father. Two people began shooting at one another, and one of the bullets hit the child in the arm. The injury wasn't life-threatening, and she received medical treatment. It's heartbreaking to think that such a young child had to experience such trauma.

The incident happened in the 500 block of West Andrus in the Shady Oaks neighborhood in south Crowley. Several families live in the residential area.
