Shots Reportedly Fired Near Walmart In Opelousas
Police in Opelousas are now suggesting that reports of gunfire inside the Walmart store on Creswell Lane might be inaccurate. According to reports, there were several shell casings found behind the Walmart store but not inside the retail location.
As of late last night, investigators were combing through evidence and witness accounts of what happened. Police say they recovered dozens of shell casings outside the store and behind the building.
Police speculate that in the chaos surrounding the incident witnesses may have become confused and that could be what led to initial reports that shots were fired inside the store. As of now, that does not appear to be the case.
There were no injuries reported but police were still on the scene early this morning as the investigation into the shots fired report continues. There we no injuries reported.
